On dreary days everyone can use a little pick me up. Our favorite way to do that? MUSIC! Here are 5 songs that speak to service and the importance of it in our lives.
- Jewel – Hands
- Michael Jackson – Heal the World
- Bono and Alicia Keys – Don’t Give Up
- Sheryl Crow – Safe and Sound
- U2 featuring Mary J. Blige – One
These 5 students on the Guatemala and Kenya team also sing service in their daily lives! Thanks for your uplifting examples ladies!
“I’ve been volunteering with the Real Life in Salt Lake City program, and it has been a great experience so far! The kids we work with at Real Life are all great kids full of energy and we have a blast with them no matter what we’re doing. We work on all sorts of things throughout the week, from etiquette to cooking competitions! I have already seen some of their attitudes and English greatly improve in the time that all of the volunteers have been there. I think that this program has really helped prepare me for teaching lessons and working with students at my international service site, Guatemala.”
“I have had the great opportunity to work at The Children of Hope Academy in St. George. I go in 2 to 3 times a week and work with a special needs girl named Angie who I have been partnered up with. Each time we meet, we work on a variety of skills, such as math, numbers, reading, counting, and even physical skills like skipping. It has been amazing to see how quickly she has progressed and the amount of knowledge that she has retained even in the short time that I have been there. Working each week with her has given me a chance to find her strengths and weaknesses so that we can know what to work on and help her improve on. I have never been in an educational environment where there has been more love and caring for individuals than the Children of Hope Academy. I am excited to continue working with the academy as long as I am in St. George.”
