For the last couple of years I've volunteered for Camp Erin and have really enjoyed it. This year however, the camp program was taken over by someone that I find rather annoying and didn't think it would be a good fit for me.
For probably 10 years, I've thought about becoming a volunteer for CASA and took my application in about a month ago. I knew this would be something that I would really have to be committed to, nothing like I've ever done before. I was excited to get a call from them this morning asking me to attend their training next week and the week following. I'm very excited yet very nervous. Hopefully I'll be able to advocate for these children without it eating me up. I'm sure they'll give us some tips on how to make sure that happens.
So, I'm looking forward to starting this new journey in my life and hope that in some small way I can make a difference. I'm excited!
