Geoffrey  RugarabamuSalam,

My first community experience was in 1997 when I joined the First Aid club in my primary school. The club was responsible for providing minor first aid help to injured athletes during sports events. I then became a registered Youth Red Cross member in 1999. The position enabled me to attend different Red Cross youth conferences held semi-annually in different regions in Tanzania, my home country. The satisfaction from serving fellow youth in orphanages, hospitals and from under privileged families was inexpressible.

ReyesYasin 130x150My name is Yasmin Reyes and I am a senior majoring in Biology. As a freshman, I was awarded the Duchesne Scholarship. Ever since I was in high school, I participated in numerous volunteer programs. The Duchesne Center has enabled me to continue doing what I love the most, and that is giving back to the community. For the past 4 years, I have volunteered for the Children's Hope Program, which involves tutoring children living with a parent who has HIV/AIDS. This program has most definitely proved to be the most rewarding, as I have developed very close relationships with many of the children and I have watched them grow. As older individuals, we served as role models, sharing our knowledge and experiences. In September, I took on the role of student coordinator for Children's Hope. I am also the student coordinator for Children's Hospital, a program that has allowed me to interact with children in a hospital setting. Both of these programs have contributed to my lifelong aspiration of becoming a Pediatrician. I would like to thank the Duchesne Center for this amazing honor.
