These past two months have flown by, and I cannot believe that we’re almost halfway through this semester! I wanted to take a moment and thank all of the volunteers that have been helping with Eagle Time, and the TWENTY-TWO volunteers we had come help at Comic-Con. I was so surprised at this turn out, and excited that so many people wanted to volunteer. This was such a fun way to spend Saturday, and the volunteers definitely helped make the event run smoothly. I hope you all had as great of a time as I did.

I have been so impressed with everyone who has volunteered at Eagle Time, as well. We’ve started having a constant group of both children and volunteers, which has helped everyone involved develop relationships with the children. It makes me feel so accomplished when I see familiar faces walk into the library on Monday and Wednesday afternoons excited to do homework, play games, and get to know our volunteers. I hope everyone who comes to help at the program notices this, and feels proud of how they’ve helped these children.
This role in Serve912 has definitely been the best part of my semester, and I cannot wait to see how the Eagle Time program progresses in the future. I hope everyone has a great rest of their month.
I’ve been in this position for two months and have completely forgotten to introduce myself. My name is Ansley Braddock, and I’m currently a sophomore Exercise Science major here at GSU. I plan to apply for the Nursing program during the Fall 2018 semester, and hopefully start the program in Spring 2019 to become a Pediatric Nurse. I like to read, learn new things, travel, bake cookies, watch Grey’s Anatomy, and spend time with my seven younger siblings.
The reason I love working as a community liaison is because I love seeing the positive impact that volunteers, the trip leaders, and myself have made on children. Knowing that I helped bridge that gap and make that connection possible, makes me feel like I’m doing something right.
Come volunteer at Eagle Time, so I can get to know you!
My name is Ansley Braddock and I’m the new Community Liaison for the Statesboro Regional Library in Downtown Statesboro. My job is to recruit volunteers and help run the Eagle Time after school program for kids in Kindergarten through 12th grade along with the trip leaders, Glory Agbeyomi and Myla Kelly. Eagle Time is on Mondays and Wednesdays at 3:15-5:15 from now, until the end of spring semester. There is a trip that leaves from the Office of Leadership and Community Engagement on Mondays at 3 o’clock, but volunteers are welcome on Wednesdays too!
During Eagle Time, our goal is to help children with homework, do activities, and to be mentors. We are always looking for new volunteers, and if these times don’t work for you, there are other opportunities at the library every month!
If you’re interested in being a part of this program and taking time in the afternoon to help out, please contact me! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m so excited to have this new position in Serve912, and cannot wait to see what this semester brings!
