We worked with the fire program at the Grand Canyon and learned all about prescribed fires and some of the rules and regulations associated with it. I had no idea the amount of work people put into actually setting fires to lessen the risk of fires! Throughout the week our team followed a group of firefighters with chainsaws and dragged brush . . .
Hiking at the Grand Canyon is definitely a sight to see. It was super windy but the view was worth it! We hiked the Bright Angel Trail and South Kaibab Trail.
We started the day off with our morning book reflection. Some were impressed by the author’s continued passion for the outdoors. Others believe he became renowned for avoidable mistakes. All in all, the book was an interesting read. Our 1st stop for the day was our last visit to the YMCA-Wabash for the trip. We were well received and . . .
On Monday through Wednesday, the nine of us were very invested with working at the Wabash YMCA, working every second because we wanted to make sure that closets were organized and clean, and that other duties were handled. Deante and the YMCA staff was very impressed with our dedication and saw that we were very ahead of schedule. They told us that . . .
Let me begin by saying that my name is Darrell Potter, and I am from a small town about an hour east of Edmond. My hometown is inhabited by approximately 700 people, so just moving toEdmondfor college was a bit of a culture shock for me. Keeping that in mind let me share myChicagoexperience thus far.
To sum it up, this city is beautiful, . . .
Yes, that’s right. it’s starting to feel like home. Well, maybe not home , but something close to it. We actually got asked directions a couple of times, which of course made us feel pretty good. Don’t get me wrong we’ve still had our navigating troubles, but it’s getting easier. We started the morning with a tour . . .

Once we got there deante,the program director instructed half of us to assist with organizing equipment while the other half of us went upstairs and cleaned and organized the gymnasium storage room. When we completed the closeup it looked different,allotting more . . .
Yesterday was our first full day in Nashville and first day to volunteer, and it was perfect! We started the day at the men’s center of the Nashville
Rescue Mission at 9am. Where we were taken to the basement to get to work. We met our wonderful supervisor BB, as they call him, who is a product of the Men’s Life Recovery program at The Mission. . . .
We took a break from work to eat lunch near the Geology Museum.
