I had a really busy and exhausting week, and so when it was time for me to go to Pratt I didn’t really want to go. However, I left feeling energized and happy. I think this goes to show how beneficial volunteering is. This lead me to finally decide my research question, which is: How does volunteering with children benefit the volunteer? I know a couple other volunteers at the Pratt school right now so, I will start by interviewing them, and hopefully I can talk to some people volunteering else where as well.
The first question I am going to ask during an interview is a simple one. How does volunteering make you feel? I am also going to ask basic questions to find out where they volunteer, with what age group, and what their time volunteering consists of. Next week I will post my interview questions in a more organized format, and hopefully I will have my first interview all lined up.
