very fun experiences
volunteer work (Current Employee), Indianapolis, INSeptember 15, 2013
Pros: seeing them lose, watching them fail, seeing them get mad
Cons: helping with making individuals happy and feel good about themselfs
i am very passionate when it deals with mentally challenge people because some are more worse causes then others and also because they may never experience the things regular individuals do. i like watching their face expressions and excitement in winning or even having fun. The worst part is watching them lose or get upset because they dont have the ability as others and some dont comprehend very well.

Pros: its a fun experience, it makes the kids happy.
You are assigned a buddy(s) and you are to entertain really, make sure they have a good time and get there physical. Then when they leave more kids comes in and you get a new buddy(s) to entertain while waiting for their turn to get a physical.
