B Better U
At Simpson University, all students are required to do a certain amount of service hours before they can graduate. The school turned this service into a class format to help students fulfill their duties. This class is called Ministry Practicum.
I decided to do my Ministry Practicum through an organization called B Better U. This organization was started by Simpson University's Women's Assistant Basketball Coach, Bryana Williams. B Better U is "...a development mentoring organization that offers various programs and resources to children, youth and young adults. We are here to motivate, encourage and walk through life with every single one of our "Life Changers" who comes into our organization. We build a family type, safe and positive atmosphere, so that everyone feels welcomed and knows that we are not here temporarily in their life, but for a lifetime!" (Quote taken from B Better U's site).
I will be helping B Better U by possibly being a mentor, tutoring, coaching, working with service projects in the community, helping with after school programs, or a variety of other things. I see this as not just a thing I need to do to graduate but I see it as an opportunity to better myself, better the community, better other people, show God's love, and share my faith through works.
