My drive to help others stems from my time volunteering with the service organization, Rotary, and their leadership program, Camp RYLA. When I attended this camp as a high schooler, I learned invaluable lessons of self-confidence and connecting with others, traits seldom found in a high school environment. My experience at this program inspired me to return as a counselor, where I have been helping foster the growth of today’s youth for the past four years.
This past summer, I had the opportunity to attend an amazing leadership camp called Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA). For the whole week, I completed multiple workshops, while making new and long-lasting relationships. As my main workshop, I chose the service workshop; we created three separate service activities for the entire camp. My group was in charge of the self-love activity, promoting the idea of service while teaching the importance of self-worth and acceptance.
SERVICE. We are committed to providing the best experience and enjoy positively interacting with everyone we meet. We genuinely care about every customer we see and do our best to find solutions to any problem that might come our way.
Throughout my high school years, I have been apart of the Interact Club run by Rotary International. Several volunteer opportunities transpired from this experience, but I discovered a newfound interest in one of the encounters. Volunteering at the local Richmond Bethel Church for the organization Food4life, I was ecstatic once I began serving food, not only were there many familiar faces that came weekly, but there were much more that were in need of these charitable acts than I had anticipated. Having lived in Richmond my whole life, I was truly oblivious to the reality of poverty within it. Joining Interact Club was truly both uplifting and humbling and was a stark reminder of how vulnerable we all are to circumstances that can affect our

I started volunteering for The Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life at my elementary school in 2009. I have had the opportunity to help MC the Langley Relay event as well as speak about my journey with the Canadian Cancer Society and my family’s struggles with cancer. I joined a team and continued to volunteer at the event as a participant until I was approached by the Canadian Cancer Society’s Community Giving Coordinator in 2012 to start a Youth Committee for young adults in the Langley School District. I was named chair in 2013, and have been in charge of running the meetings, arranging presentations and contacting other potential members; our goal for Langley is to have the largest youth component in all of Western Canada. In 2014, I was the Captain of one of Brookswood Secondary’s five teams. For the past 2 years, I have been on Walnut Grove Secondary’s team and we have fundraised by selling tulips during lunch and after school and selling Krispy Creme Doughnuts. In total, over my seven years of participation alone, I have raised over $15,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society. As a committee, we travel around Langley

These past few weeks I have had the pleasure to work closely with a member of our community that has positively affected Findlay and the surrounding area. Jim Shrader was nominated for the Edwin L. Heminger Award and I and a few other students have worked with him and corporations in the city to compile a video that showed the dedication he expressed to make this community better. Mr. Shrader has been one of many adults that I have had the ability to watch and have as a role model. More include my grandparents who have contributed to make the University of Findlay a better place.
This event helped to show me what a difference volunteering can make in the community. I learned a lot about swabbing while volunteering. At first some people did not even know what they were signing up for. We helped to alleviate any fears or concerns they might have by educating them.
As a celebration and to show our support we would love to invite you to our Volunteer Appreciation Event. We will be celebrating the Last Friday of June with Beverages, Beer and Bites. Please stop
His participation in service trips the last two summers also attests to his willingness to work hard and to serve others. Many of the clubs he participates in also have service-oriented goals. For instance, Interact, an affiliate of the Optimists Club, planned and executed a fundraiser for a local camp, which serves physically and mentally challenged campers.
If nominated as a Newman Civic fellow, I would be excited for the opportunity to learn more about the potential and challenges of civic leadership over the course of my junior year. Volunteer work has always been an important part of my life, but my experiences at UW-Madison have encouraged me to become a better leader as well as a more active member of the community. The outreach that I have performed on campus has not only helped me to discover my passions, but has given me a new perspective on how to address the needs of a community.
My business will provide beauty and relaxation services to customers. The services provided in my business will be in the form of hairstyles, massages, manicures, and pedicures. Providing these services require close and “personal interaction of employees with customers” (Longenecker & Petty, et al., 2013, p. 566). These services will be provided based upon the requests and desires of demanding customers. In order for my business to be successful, all employees and myself must have close connections with customers in order for clients to continue to return to my business for more continuous services. Having a close relationship with customers will allow employees to understand and more accurately serve their needs and demands (Longenecker & Petty, et al., 2013, p. 566). Effective operations management necessitates “making hiring decisions by selecting employees with
