I have volunteered for the past six years of my life, since high-school. I created three clubs, while continuing to have high-honors (all four years), played varsity volleyball, always had a job.
Special Olympics (adults) unified sports, multiple years with the same peers (guided various levels and/of different peers with disabilities. My goal for every person is to be a good teacher, role model, a friend to have fun with, and show that to others like my younger brother, who is now 12 yr old who also volunteered. COVID-19 did not give anybody much planning, and my brother had struggled with school when he couldn't see his teacher, so I used tools from the field of education and my intuition to successfully create tools and other outlets to see how he obtains the most information from. I am not a certified teacher yet, however by personal experience children tend to withhold more knowledge in a brain when learning from all; verbally, audio, hand-written, songs, games, etc).
