David Navarro May 16, 2006 Dr. Gilbert R. Cadena EWS 280 Journal # 4 During this week’s Service Learning at the Boys and Girls Club, I spent my time helping out kids with their homework during Power Hour. During Power Hour every kid must do their homework, if the kids do not have any homework, they are given power sheets. The kids get the opportunity to receive help and guidance while doing their homework. After Power Hour, the kids have the opportunity to play games, compete against each other, work with wood, and crafting. Also, I played with several kids bumper pool, foosball, and pool. By this time at the Boys and Girls Club the kids already know my name and look forward every day to play with me or help them with their homework. The kids expect us to be there every day, and when we do not show up, the kids always ask us the next day why we did not show up.

I have had the opportunity to impact kids and help them with their studies. I know that with helping out kids now will help them out in the long run and help them graduate from high school, since there is a high rate of dropouts, I will somehow impact one kid to stay in school and graduate....
