Shopping Personal Assistant

Goal: Students volunteer to assist individuals with physical or intellectual disabilities shop in local grocery stores. Students assist with pushing carts, retrieve materials from shelves, load into car.


Preparation Instruction:
Contact Ms. San Nicolas at JFKHS rmsannicolas@gdoe.net to set up first interviews. Together we will coordinate reaching out to stores where you would like to volunteer.
Contact a teacher or counselor at your school if you are not at JFKHS. You will need a sponsor to approve your project so they can input it into Power School.

Activity Instruction:

Students volunteer to assist individuals with physical or intellectual disabilities shop in local grocery stores. Students assist with pushing carts, retrieve materials from shelves, load into car.


Reflection Instruction:

In order to earn service learning hours, a reflection will need to be turned in to a teacher for input into Power School. The reflection should address: What did you do? What did you learn? In what way was this service to your community? Write about the challenges an individual with disabilities or a senior citizen experiences navigating stores. What can stores do to better service their customers with these challenges?
