Breakfast Program Volunteers

This experience made me feel more like a part of the Hamilton community beyond McMaster.  I think that, for a student, having a place to go each morning helps make the rest of the day go smoothly and has a long-term positive impact on the children's overall well-being and academics as well.

I realized my contributions are important and that they make a difference to at-risk youths.  Poverty has many effects, not just malnutrition, but also education and health care.  I hope I have left a positive impact on the kids, either through providing a nutritious breakfast or giving them advice on various aspects of their lives.  Through the influence of my service, they may decide to help others or see the importance of education or work hard to improve their lives in the future.
