BADM 1002 17 First Year Development

1. I went to the presentation about National wildlife Federation. Speakers talked about the main missions of the federation, which is to help animals in danger. This organization is impressive to me because it has updated its website and e-publishing. There are more modern users interfacing online and it has kindle/ apple bookstore magazine publishing. The corporate social responsibility is related to round up and donate program. It could make a big difference with more people gathering together.
2. I attended the session that is to make contributions through digital form. Videos are such creative ways that attract more people to engaged with. I learnt that we should build connections with community partners and our neighbors. It is excited to learn people from different communities. Also, I have got a deeper understanding of community and I broadened my responsibility as a member in my community.

Which showcase presentation was most impactful to you and why?
origination that helps incarcerated men get an education. This was the first time I see an organisation that helps the people in these situations and I found it interesting. The speaker explained his experience with working with the inmates and how they use the pen pal system to help them higher their literacy. I found this to be a great idea because it helps the inmates with for after they are done with their time, they become more educated and that is fundamental in order for them to grow.

Which of the six sessions did you attend from 2:30-3:20? In your session, what was something new you learned about community engaged scholarship?
For the session from 2:30 to 3:30 I attended the Last Call presentation. Similar to Martha's Table they’re goal is provide food to the people in need. They take the food that would be thrown to waste and distribute it. From this I was able to learn that community engaged scholarship is based on donations from nonprofit organisations. In Last Call’s case they pushing to stop food desserts and help the poor with providing them food.

1. The most impactful showcase presentation to me was Working Retail at Martha's Table. The presentation was for Communication 1041. I will be taking the same course next year. It was interested how people gain communication skill through working with other volunteers. By supporting strong children and families at Martha's Table, volunteers learned not to be afraid to ask questions when first meet people and it is important to learn different culture.

2. From 2:30 to 3:30, I attended the session in which leaders of Last Call and Community Engaged Consulting presented on the initiatives that they have started. It was fascinating how a staggering 40% of food is wasted. It is an amazing way to combat both food waste and food insecurity at GW.

This was a really cool opportunity to serve the community by setting up a showroom with furniture and goods people may need. We sorted through various goods that were donated and decided what was important to keep and what wasn't.
