A Unique Learning Experience I gained valuable experience and knowledge from both ends—as a recipient and as a member—of this unique organization. Although I am involved in many clubs, organizations, and jobs, too, I can honestly say that TeenWorks is my most rewarding extracurricular activity. During every board meeting, every outreach event, every training program—whether I am leading them or not—I am learning. I learn about teamwork, leadership, delegation, construction, and service. But the most important theme I have learned is that anyone can help the community, no matter what situation you find yourself in.
