Miles KerbeinComm 495: CapstoneCommunity Service Weekly Reflections GuideWeek 1:For my capstone community service I decided that I was going to volunteer at theBoys and Girls Club off of Marsh road here in Charlotte.

Thiswas really eye opening because it was almost as if he could tell I was nervous walking inand he took it into his own hands to help me adapt to my new environment. My initialobservations of the Boys and Girls Club was that it was crowded and seemed sort of hectic, but as the kids became adjusted to me being there and more and more staff arrived, it became significantly more calm. As I sat on the floor playing with these kids, Irealized how much joy guests who volunteer can bring to these young kids days. Another amazing thing I witnessed when I was performing my service was a young girl who wasdoing her homework and when I walked over she was writing Chinese and practicing thelanguage. This was amazing to see someone who was still in elementary school be ableto speak and write a foreign language as complex as Chinese. Another event that took  place was that once everyone was done with their homework everybody ran out and began playing again, however there was one boy who everyone left behind and when Iwalked over to talk to him and see what he was doing, he told me that he was stuck on hishomework. So I sat down and began to look at what he was doing and tried to explain it
