Service Learning

My service learning took place at Mount Olivet United Methodist Church helping out with the afterschool program. Each week, my friend Mary V. and I would go and teach them different lessons about the importance of eating healthy and exercising among other things. The kids were all elementary school age and enjoyed the activities we did with them about being healthy and nutrition.

  • Scripted movie.
  • I employed the help of 2 first graders and 1 kindergartner to show the importance of eating healthy.
