Human Services - RAFT Activity
One of VT Seva Bay Area’s human services events of May was RAFT. RAFT is an organization that works towards providing teachers with affordable supplies so that they do not need to pay for classroom projects with their own money. RAFT provides teachers with hands-on STEAM project kits, activity sheets, classroom ideas and teacher tip sheets. All of these project kits and packages require volunteers to package them into bags in order for them to be given to teachers. This is where youth volunteers were given supplies to package and then bring back to the RAFT facility in one week so that it can be distributed to the teachers! This activity taught youth volunteers about different aspects of our community and how this is a way to help out our hardworking teachers!
Health Services - Webinar
For VT Seva Bay Area’s health services event of May, youth volunteers had an interactive webinar about nutritional health and lifestyle. The guest speaker for this event was Dr. Padmaja Vemula, who talked about various topics such as nourishing food for our body, dieting, health, moderation, and finally, maintaining a positive and balanced lifestyle! Dr. Vemula provided our youth volunteers with information on how nutrition and the food we put in our body impacts us!
Environmental-Services - Compost Gardening Activity
VT Seva Bay Area continued its compost gardening activity in the month of May. Our volunteers composted things such as fruits, leftovers, Cardboard, paper bags and much more! At the end of the month, volunteers sent in images of how they compost! This has an enormous impact on our environment because it is a clean way to recycle your leftover foods and reduce your trash!
Environmental-Services - Adopt a Creek
Youth volunteers drove to a local creek during the month of May and cleaned up alongside it. There was a lot of trash such as bags, wrappers, papers, and much more which are all very harmful to the turtles and fish in the creek. Youth volunteers worked hard to pick up all of this garbage to keep the creek clean!
Environmental-Services - Milpitas Park Cleanup Activity
For the month of May, youth volunteers met at a local Milpitas park to do their park cleanup. There are many kids playing at the park and our youth volunteers make sure it is always safe and clean for them to do so!
Environmental-Services - Our City Forest
Youth volunteers as a group went to a local urban forestry known as Our City Forest. Our City Forest is a non-profit organization that works towards providing affordable plants and trees for low-income residents as it is required for some houses in the Bay Area. At Our City Forest youth volunteers plucked weeds so that new trees could be planted for the year. Another activity at Our City Forest required youth volunteers to clean up around the forestry in order to provide a clean and beautiful nursery!
VT Seva San Antonio volunteers came together for the first time after the pandemic to help keep the area that we have adopted clean.
