10 Reasons to Volunteer

 

 

1. Make a difference.
Volunteering is about giving back. With a team of like-minded people by your side, you’ll get the chance to be a part of something bigger than yourself: to immerse yourself in different experiences, to instigate change at a grassroots level and along the way, to gain new perspective.
2. Change a life.
We believe the most beneficial thing we can do is to give people opportunities, not handouts. With us, you will lay the foundations of durable change and improvement in the lives of the communities you work with.
3. Give back to the causes most meaningful to you.
Pick your volunteer work based on what inspires you most. Whether it’s animal conservation, primary education, or construction work, you will create positive change in the world.
4. Gain a new perspective.
As the saying goes, “life begins at the end of your comfort-zone”. We come from extremely privileged countries in terms of both opportunities and amenities, and often do not realize the hardships others endure. You will be amazed how much you can take away from a summer volunteer experience and how it allows you to see the world in a different way.
5. Make a real connection.
Volunteering means you’ll have the chance to work alongside people from all over the country and make life-long friendships!

 

6. Real-world experience.
Releasing baby turtles, teaching English in underprivileged primary schools, laying foundations and building houses, preparing lunch for up to 100 children, cleaning crocodile enclosures, refurbishing classrooms, making enrichment toys for elephants… talk about real-world experience! You will bring home skills you never even knew existed!
7. Learn new skills.
Volunteering abroad is eye-opening, and the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself: you’ll learn to problem-solve, work with a team, be resourceful and adapt to life in an unfamiliar environment. These are skills that will benefit you for the rest of your life, no matter what field of work you chose.
8. Boost your resume for college applications.
As a general rule, recruiters look out for people with community involvement. It helps to create a positive impression, makes you more innovative, creative and gives you a range of useful skills. More importantly, college recruiters look at community involvement from students as a demonstration of leadership.
9. It's fun!
Volunteer work can be demanding, but it’s also a whole lot of fun!

Sachem Creates a Buzz at Annual Brain Bee

Six Sachem High School Science Research students from High Schools North and East attended the 2019 Long Island Brain Bee, held at the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell on Feb. 9. 

Sachem High School East students Asweel Mehaboob, Zul Norin and Elizabeth Reimer joined Sachem High School North students Nistha Boghra, Amy Delury and Miranda Garcia-Cassani to attend the annual competition that gives interested students a venue to explore multiple disciplines associated with the study of the brain. The bee also exposes them to career opportunities in neurology, neurosurgery, psychology and neuroscience.

The one-day competition is comprised of three components: a written test on brain facts, laboratory demonstrations on normal and pathological human brain and spinal cord specimens, and a test to identify the anatomical structures and functions of a real human brain.

Senior Amy Delury placed third in this year’s competition, her third consecutive top three finish. 
 

Living History Museum Celebrates Black History Month

A celebration of African-American art, music and poetry recently took place at Sachem High School East as part of a Harlem Renaissance Living History Museum in honor of Black History Month.

Led by members of the History Honor Society and club adviser Tracey Melandro, students created a vibrant display of African-American culture that highlighted achievements in art, music, literature and sports. Throughout this month, students researched a specific area of African-American culture and developed engaging ways to present the information to their peers. Some of the unique ways students presented the information was by creating a “poet tree” where students added pieces of poetry, a station where students could recreate art from the Harlem Renaissance and another station where they could add a note to a board about what inspires them. 

While the museum was open, high school students across grade levels patiently waited to view each informative display highlighting some of the most prominent African-Americans in history. 

 

Studying the Science of Natural Disasters

Towering waves, structure-shaking winds and ground-crumbling earthquakes were all topics of discussions in Caitlin Thompson’s Natural Disasters class at Sachem High School East, a science elective for students in 10th, 11th, and 12th grades. 

As part of the course, students learned about natural disasters that occur around the world, such as earthquakes, volcanos, wild fires, tornados, blizzards, floods and plagues. Students examined numerous causes of these disasters using knowledge from several specific areas of science, including meteorology, geology and Earth science. 

During a recent activity examining the power of hurricane-force winds, students were tasked to construct a miniature hurricane-proof building with the ability to withstand extreme winds. Using tape, pipe cleaners, string and tongue depressors, students assembled buildings capable of holding the load of a tennis ball while also withstanding high winds simulated by a fan. 

 
 

Building a Foundation for Future Educators

As part of a collection of informative lessons on infants, toddlers and preschoolers, students at Sachem High School East in Debra Lopez’s Child Development class worked with children from the community to study the social and emotional aspects of play. 

Children ages 1-5 came to visit the high school class so students could observe critical points in their growth, such as physical, social, emotional and intellectual development. During the visits, students guided the children through numerous age-appropriate activities, such as finger painting and using rolling pins and cookie cutters with Play-Doh. 

For students interested in pursuing a career in education or child care services, the Child Development class is an excellent introductory opportunity to gain valuable experience working with young children.
