Andrew D. Harsh YPI Service Reflection

Over the course of the YPI, I think my skills at working with others improved greatly. I think that my group divided the work of the project very well among us, with every member playing a part, but none of us dominating the rest. I think that our caring about the issue brought us together and allowed me to have enough confidence in others that we could put forth a product that was really the result of the hard work of all of us. Service really helped to bring us together this year and I am grateful for that.
I thought that the hardest part of this project was making sure we kept working on it, as we were doing numerous other things in History class and other classes. Stretching the project over a long time meant that every time we went back to improve on it, we had to remind ourselves of everything we had done before. For me, the site visit was the most rewarding part of the project. I really enjoyed getting to see the boats and environmental projects that the teens at Rocking the Boat were working on and how dedicated they were to the issue, and though I am disappointed not to have won the grant for our organization, I think that I learned some very valuable things while working towards that goal.
