The service which I have chosen is Street cleaning. I found that the streets in my area were dirty and full of garbage so as a responsible person I thought to clean it all by myself. The purpose of selecting a particular CAS experience is not just for fulfilling the CAS requirements but also to keep the environment and our surroundings clean. The main issue which I will be focusing upon is cleanliness.
Learning outcomes achieved by me in this experience are:
LO2 Demonstrate that challenges have been undertaken developing new skills
When I saw the streets near my house were dirty, I felt that it was my duty to keep it clean as I should be a responsible citizen and take care of it. The first challenge which I felt was gathering people. So, when I made some phone calls to people for asking help to clean the streets they weren’t ready to do that, but I encouraged them in doing it so they came and helped me with it. The other challenge which I felt was to convince people to keep the city clean. So, with the help of social media, I tried to do that.
LO 3 Demonstrate how to initiate and plan a CAS experience
As we had a long weekend leave, I decided to go for a cleanliness drive for all three days. I was able to make people understand and make them know what impact can we make if we personally engage in these types of cleanliness activities.
LO4 Commitment to and perseverance
Commitment to cleaning the streets was not a concern for me because I liked doing it after I did it on the first day. As I said earlier, we went to clean streets three days a week. We found it to be quite fun and engaging. We nearly went for almost 3 hours each day for the activity.
LO6 Demonstrate engagement with issues of global significance.
So after doing the activity we found it out to be quite fun and engaging so we went 3 hours each day. Cleanliness around us is very much important and also has a major global significance. This activity becomes performed throughout instances of a global pandemic and despite the fact that the general public locations have been open, it’s far our obligation to live domestic and scale back the virus. However, the cleansing of the streets become additionally essential so we got here up with a solution. We could try this withinside the morning at 8:00 am – 11:00 am to keep away from crowds, each volunteer could put on gloves and mask and continue to be enough distance and we might comply with all COVID recommendations which will be safe. At last, we made certain to do the proper element in each component and made certain our choices have been ethical.
