My summer of Volunteering: Hailey

SWTA group of teens spent their summer volunteering at the Southwest Branch Library. Now Hailey tells us what she really thought about her volunteer experience assisting with programs, planning a program for other teens, and helping out their librarians!

 

Hailey, what did you think about volunteering at the Southwest Branch Library this summer?

As the end of summer is unfortunately and rapidly approaching, I reflect on what I have accomplished as a free teenager for the past months, and hopefully I come to the conclusion that I’ve done something purposeful.  I know that most kids totally and utterly detest the sheer thought of anything related to school, and I’m not denying the fact that I am one of those people, but this summer I did something out of the ordinary for me.  This fall, I’ll be a high school freshman, and as much as I am excited, I’m also just as nervous.  I already have nine years of school under my belt (don’t forget preschool), so what could be so different?  Although I don’t have older siblings, I’ve gone through life without any helpful advice from experience such as homework help and some morale support, but I have heard through the grape vine what to expect this school year.  Continue reading
