I enjoyed working for AmeriCorp Vista as a summer associate. My co-workers and I coordinated workshops for kids ages 4-18 about eating healthy and exercising daily. We interacted with the students by doing push ups, sit ups, and jumping jacks contests. We had a few students compete to see who could name the most fruits and vegetables. We went around our community talking to people we knew that grew their own fruits and/or vegetables. They shared with us how growing your own fruits and vegetables were healthier than what you get out of the stores. The hardest part of the job, at first, were finding different farmers that had their own garden. It's not many in our community. The most enjoyable part was being around the kids and interacting with them and talking to them about how important it is to eat healthy and exercise daily.
