Junior Nora Povejsil tutors with Project for Pride in Living. “I think it’s good to be active locally and make your community better,” Povejsil said.

The annual Service Fair provided students with information about various local opportunities to give back to the community, but few follow through. Junior Nora Povejsil, however, took advantage of the options available and currently volunteers with Project for Pride in Living.

“Every Tuesday and Thursday I go to Project for Pride in Living and I tutor a seven-year-old girl in literacy,” Povejsil said.

Povejsil aims to combine education with fun to help the girl she is tutoring learn faster.

“Each session is two hours long. We start by doing mindfulness for 10 minutes, things like yoga and meditation, and then we work on reading and writing and playing literacy games. At the end, we do a fun activity,” Povejsil said.

I really wanted to hang out with kids and help them out.”

Povejsil elaborated on her reasons for choosing to tutor.

“I really wanted to hang out with kids and help them out, and it also I wasn’t doing anything in the spring after school, besides ultimate, and I [thought tutoring] would be a good way to use my time,” Povejsil said.

For Povejsil, service is an important part of her life.

“I think it’s good to be active locally and make your community better,” Povejsil said.
