I have learned many lessons in my time that will help guide me through my life. However, I think one experience that will definitely stick with me forever is attending Missouri Boys State. At Boys State, our motto was, “A Week To Change A Lifetime,” and it truly was. We learned about integrity, honesty, pride, and what it means to be in the American Legion. We also learned about the political system and how our government works by making our own government.
As I am relatively new to this area of work it is also important to reflect as a youth worker in order for me to be effective and capable within my job. It is necessary for me to reflect on my experiences so far from the year and a half I have spent in college and it’s important for me to continually highlight areas for development while I am on placement. First I must identify the strengths and skills I have acquired and then to plan my development needs. My role requires me develop plans to suit the service users; I feel my current qualifications and experience will develop after my placement. I also feel it is essential to enhance my current knowledge of youth and community work and monitor my progress. I think the important thing to remember is that I am reflecting for my own development.
In today’s world there are hundreds of thousands of non-profit organizations (NPOs) established at the local, regional, national and international level, and their influence is increasing. Non-profit organizations even considered the third sector of the economy (the first two is the public and private, or commercial). It is believed that they have a special role in development of civil society. In those countries, which have largely shaped the system of legislative regulation of the sector (USA, UK, Australia, etc); the state spends huge sums on research programs in the field of standardization of the NPO.
There’s nothing like witnessing a person have a light bulb moment, especially when you are the one teaching them. I was blessed to witness 20 lightbulb moments all at one time last summer at Camp Sonshine where I volunteered as a camp counselor. This was the moment that I was completely convinced to become a teacher even though the idea of it has been in the back of my mind since my preschool years. This lightbulb moment for all the children that I was teaching was the most impactful leadership that I have had because I made them feel confident and good about themselves, which was all I could ask for, and it made me joyful.
The 1930s for the United States was not one of the best times in history. October 29, 1929 was the start of the great depression. One of the hardest parts of history in the united states. The Great depression was when the stock market crashed and unemployment skyrocketed. Unemployment reached to nearly 13 to 15 million people, which is about 25 percent, up from 3.2 percent in 1929. Industrial production declined by 50 percent, international trade plunged 30 percent, and investment fell 98 percent, and almost half of the banks in the united states also have failed. People across the nation lost their farms and homes. Some traveled to other states in hopes of employment with no luck.
As healthcare providers, we need to have open minds and be able to understand all different types of clients. Not all clients are dealing with issues of events like recovering from knee surgery or a heart attack. A large percentage of our population is dealing with addiction problems and alcohol addiction being the largest. As nurses we need to support our clients and help them in anyway possible to find and seek out treatment. One resource that is well known to most communities is Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). This free not profit program can be a great starting point for someone looking for help. In ordered to have an understanding about this resource, it is beneficial to us to attend a few local meeting sites.
My internship experience at Texas Total Health has been a great learning experience. While interning there I had the opportunity to perform numerous tasks and jobs, which has helped me build on my nutrition experience. Before beginning this experience I was expecting to get the opportunity to work with clients and observe nutrition counseling in a real life setting. I also wanted to be able to practice creating client’s meal plans, and learn how a private nutrition business operates. On top of my expectations there was a job description of the intern position with many task to be performed over the semester. Now after recently completing my internship at Texas Total Health my experience did meet my expectations and the job description was accurate.
Catonsville emergency food ministries (CEFM), which provides food, and household supplies to the homeless and needy population, is where I did three hours of my service hours. All though this was not my first choice, as I thought I could not learn anything from it, and it would be boring and not engaging. I was wrong; I didn’t know the work and knowledge that went into planning, for the day to day operation of a food bank. The building itself was small, and lack adequate space for storage, and working. The week prior they lost all of their meat supplies due to a freezer malfunction, which left a slight death smell in the building. The volunteers were very nice and helpful in showing me around, and answering question. I was actually surprised that one of the volunteers was 16, and was doing it just to get out of the house.
On wednesday at my internship was a very important day, because I got to go into the field and instead of go to the agency with went out into the field. That day I went to a place with some body of the agency and I saw the process of how they recruit the young participant to join the program. Which I think it's a good way to reach out to this participants, because as young participant they most of the time won't be interested until somebody reach them to help the participants.is a speciall internship becaouse is very important this is a good story to tell.It was really interesting to see the agancy from another perspective. Chapter 11 on the book the human services internship, it explained how as a professional and as a person that is learning,
The Adelburgers went head first into the cusp of a rather peculiar assignment, near the end of April. This late part of their assigned Sunday Morning Special involves the Adelburgers having the honors of transporting the lifeless cadavers of four Underground members, who wound up missing in January of 2015, to the Catholic School Underground leadership. The CSU will then return the bodies to the families, from which the deceased will be given a proper burial. Recently, the bodies were discovered in a secluded part of New Jersey, as well as underwent separate autopsies by a certified medical examiner from Iowa. Of course, as to how they ended up being killed in the first place, that is not an area for the Adelburgers to be asking their superiors
There was not much that I was required to do except encourage the youth during the pool time. There were times throughout the internship that I wished I was given more responsibility. However I was glad to learn, and help in any way that I could. That first week I had the opportunity to attend the church board meeting. I witnessed the difference of opinion that some of the church leaders had in regards to time off. Most of the church staff wanted more days off to spend with family. This was one of the primary issues ongoing with the staff at the church. I learned about church politics and the operation of the church.
A for-profit healthcare organization may be formed to conduct business activities pertaining to healthcare. The primary reason in forming a for-profit healthcare organization is to earn a profit for the investors of the company. With regard to for-profit healthcare organizations, the profits of the company are distributed to the owners or investors of the company in the form of dividends after EBITDA is calculated. A for-profit healthcare organization allows a business owner to obtain gains from the organization if the business remains profitable. A not-for-profit healthcare organization is formed for the good of the community. Not-for-profit healthcare organizations are formed for religious, charitable, or philanthropic purposes. The revenue raised by the not-for-profit healthcare organization must be reintegrated into the organization, so it is able to achieve its
This summer has by far been the most meaningful due to my internship at the Lloyd Moss Free Clinic. I had a wonderful opportunity to use my summer before college to explore healthcare professions and learn how a free clinic functions. Throughout my experience, I was exposed to many different professions within a clinic. My daily task consists of a wide variety of activities. I would begin by sorting and filing patient document, gathering charts for upcoming appointments, and helping the clinical operations director with projects regarding referrals. Then, I would continue my day at the call center. While assisting at the call center, I was able to learn what exactly each department handles at the clinic and I was exposed to a variety of terms
When starting this project, I was not sure who I wanted to interview, which field of social work, I wanted to know more first-hand information about. I thought about interviewing a school social worker, or a non-profit management social worker. I eventually decided that I would like to learn about non-profit management because I have not had much knowledge on that concertation.
