For my service trip, I traveled to Yuba City to work with the Western Farm Worker’s Association. The idea of service is one that has been slowly flowering in my mind since the trip, and I have come to find that service has many meanings.
My service trip was amazing. I had one of the best weeks I’ve ever had working and learning. I met many different new people through volunteering, and grew closer to the people I already knew. It was also a lot of fun. But I must admit I was having trouble figuring out how it related to Peace Studies class, which it was the official field trip for. Then, after a class reading that explained service in a spiritual sense, and a discussion in Humanities and Ethics, I began to understand.
