This week and next, we will
feature excerpts from the
journal of Tom Bradford,
mentor to an at-risk youth in
Wayne. The mentor program
is just one of the service-learn-
ing courses offered by Project
Community.

Oct. 8: Today was the first day of
going to the site and i act ally went a
bit better than I expected. My initial
expectation was the k.d s wrokI(4proba
bly be a bit shy and not at al Iorward
with me. It was a pleasant surprise
that they seemed to accept us quickly.-
I sat next to Jam and. as such, talked
mostly with him. Obiirusly he does
not have a very happy faily life. I
found out he d!oes not hv a father
and from his response to his favorite
family member ayself. he said) there
are obviously onliL's there. Other
than that, he certainly dii not setm to
have problems wth social skls. He
was friendlv, good -mannered, and cer-
tainly not an introvert.
Oct. 10: Today we were paired up
and, as I kid of expected, I was
paired with Jami. We went in and
talked a little bit and he was pretty
open. Right now I am unsure what I
am supposed to work on wth Jami
He. in fact, does not have mny
problems at aJl, unlss he is not
telling me the whole truth I wsh 1
knew a little more about what was
going on in his life. He said he was
an only child and he liked t hat.
Oct. 17: Jami was incrcbibl active
and because of that he was hard to
control. However, we did discuss
school, which is good because that
is where he is having a ..t of prob

WHY VOLUNTEER?
Following are excerpts of U-M
student responses to that question
posed by Project SERVE:
"I think it is important to take
time out of ourselves - not to be
concerned with only our problems
and worries, only our lives, but get
away from ourselves and look at
other people and realize what
other kinds of people are really out
there. In doing this, we not only
help ourselves examine our own
lives, but we also provide help for
others."
"Change needs to happen on every
level of our society. I have chosen
to work on the local level, with
SAFE House, because it's inspir-
ing to see the effects of our actions
in the lives of the women with
whom we work."
"There is nothing quite like that
fuzzy, warm glow you feel inside
when you help others."
"Rather than waste my life show-
ering myself with excess, I can
contribute the extra effort I have
to those who need it. And in giving
to them, I am also giving myself
the most precious gift I can - the
assurance my life will have been
worth something."

volunteer opportunities available
in the Ann Arbor community,

Earlier this winter, as myfriends
and I contemplated options for
spring break (before last semes-
ter even ended!), we came up
with a glorious plan: we would
drive to Colorado and indulge in
a week of deep powder skiing
under the Rockies' blue skies.
Instead, I spent the week with
twenty other U-M students in
New York City at soup kitchens,
elderly visitation programs, and
tutoring youth- at-risk.
I did not once think of
changing my decision.
As this volunteer discovered,
Project SERVE offered the
opportunity of an alternative
spring break. In addition to
U-M student groups working
on the two New York projects
which have received assis-
tance for the past two years
(one with soup kitchens, an-
other with youth in deten-
tion), a third group of stu-
dents went to Kalamazoo,
Michigan and worked with
Habitat for Humanity, a
housing organization for low-
income people. Because of
the overwhelming response to
this year's Service Spring
Break projects, Project
SERVE hopes to offer addi-
tional sites in the future to
accommodate all those
interested.
However, if you would rather
not wait until next year to
become involved in commu-
nity service, come into the
Project SERVE office, 2211
Michigan Union, or call 936-
