* Activity that I should have done: Hand out manilla folders and have everyone design their own. This will be their folder where you will use to track their progress in community service and college access. Have them fill out a survey that asks about their hobbies, colleges they're interested in, ect. and tape inside the folder. Create a general office hour form that says the name of student, how long you spent with them, and what you discussed so you could slip it inside their folders when you get back to the office. It'll be super useful when you fill out your monthly reports.
