Volunteer Orientation

During our volunteer fellowship, we had the opportunity to work with many college students, faculty, and deans at many colleges in the region.

This morning, we observed the orientation given by the City Tourism Operations Office, for the big festival that starts next week. Several of the items presented to the college level student volunteers include:
  • Do not say no, give an alternative

  • Do not crack under pressure

  • Do not say it is not my job

  • Do not say I do not know.

These recommendations can apply to all volunteer projects.

We are really looking forward to the festival, as it will give us the opportunity to meet some of the local tribe leaders and even potentially ask them about emergency preparedness.
