Welcome to the Pathway's Student Volunteer Blog!
My name is Alyssa Koenings, but my friends call me Alix. I am excited I get to share my volunteer experiences with you through this blog.
I am one of the four seniors graduating from Pathways Charter School this year, and I am not sure where I am going to college yet. But I am looking every spare moment I have! Through Pathways, the seniors have a class called the Civic Capstone project. I am working for my credit in English and Social Studies by writing for the blog. So I get to do my school work doing something I love and helping others experience volunteering through a new light! The other seniors are working with other nonprofits in the community, like the History Center, Riveredge and Rides & Reins.
Currently I work at the Braising Pan, just near Regner Park. When I’m not working or looking for colleges, you can usually find me drawing, reading, writing, editing or filming.
Although this is my first time going through the Volunteer Center, I have volunteered through the program ‘Feed My Starving Children’ many times with my family. I also help out with my church’s nursery, and help at Regner Park with some of the Christmas events that happen there.
My first event through the Volunteer Center will be on Thursday, September 29th when I attend the United for Our Future assembly event with my dad. I look forward to meeting you there!
