Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-ed)

As a volunteer with the SNAP-ed office I was able to prepare a 6-week-long course focused on the importance of exercise and nutrition to children aged from K-6th grade. During these lessons, a food sample and exercise were always incorporated into each week's lesson to spark each child's interest and to engage them into the new material.

At the Rutgers Cooperative Extension, I volunteered as a Nutrition Outreach Educator. During my time as a volunteer, I helped prepare for lessons for children in K-12th grade in both public and private schools. I facilitated these lessons at off-site locations under the supervision of the classroom's teacher. Students completed a pre and post survey which allowed us to see the progress and growth of the program. 

In the summer, I volunteered my time with the cooperative extension as an administrative volunteer. During this time I helped organize paperwork, counted pre/post surveys, made sure documents were up to date and filed folders in the office.
