About 50% of the students in our school live in dorms. I’ve decided to get involved in the dorm ministry as a way to serve the RAs and dorm parents and also as a way to get to know the students better in a less formal setting than school. Every Thursday night, the dorm parents have the night off, so people like me volunteer: I’m subbing in one boys’ dorm and one girls’ dorm. While there, I eat dinner with all the students and RAs, help with baking or cutting meat/veggies for the following day’s lunch, and hang out with the students. I look forward to Thursday nights.
Transformational education? It helps to have a servant-heart to be a change-agent.
