FC: My SAE Project By: Karri Meehan 3rd Block
1: Describe it! | For my SAE project I selected volunteer work. I did many volunteering acts for the community. For example I did the hands on Atlanta redecorating the greenhouse areas; I helped with the Salvation Army ringing the bell at Wal-Mart raising money for the less fortunate and also I participated with the FFA and Octagon organizations ‘Adopt A Mile’. We accumulated the litter and debris right in front of the school and along the Favor Road. We used many tools with the hands on Atlanta project like shovels, pitch forks, rakes, and it involved shoveling dirt and mulch. At Wal-Mart we only needed a bell and apron to greet the customers. The ‘Adopt A Mile’ we just used gloves and trash bags cleaning on favor road.

4: My Skills | You have to be consternate of others and most be responsible and be really passionate of helping others. Thats basically all you need for becoming a volunteer.
7: The most significant thing that I observed while volunteering is that helping others and assisting someone to achieve their goal is the biggest accomplishment on it own.
9: The outcome of my actions was very rewarding, it taught me how to me more responsible able and also more respectful.
11: You can volunteer to be anything really but you won't get paid. Like a volunteer fire fighter or a volunteer social worker and anything else. It will increase your benefit at getting a job like some jobs will ask if you would like a career at the place you are volunteering at. It also really helps in your accomplishment of getting a scholarship and/or collage with a certain quantity of hours. You can be a nonprofit director but you won’t get paid as much as other jobs. There is one job and it is a human services job with a nonprofit company that pays $40-50,000/yearly. A strong desire to help others is an important consideration for a job as a human services worker. Individuals who show patience, understanding, and caring in their dealings with others are highly valued by employers.
