Virtual Family Fair
Jeffrey Trail MS
I started volunteering with STEAM for All because I attended many of the SfA activities (like All Girls Math Tournament and Hour of Code) when I was in elementary school. I also wanted to give back to my community and make learning more fun for younger students, especially during such unprecedented times. I enjoy the fact that I get to make a difference in students' educational lives by helping them discover their interests in STEAM.
Since I only recently started volunteering with STEAM for All, promoting the Virtual Family Fair was my first volunteer service activity and I'm very glad I was able to contact and promote this event to many students. When I first got this assignment, I didn't even realize how many people I was capable of reaching out to and I'm happy to have contributed to the success of SfA's Virtual Family Fair.
I started volunteering in June of 2020! After completing the YLP program, the first event I volunteered for was the Science Bowl, and it was such an amazing experience. The main reason I enjoy volunteering is because I love making little kids smile, since I have a sibling of my own! I also relish sharing my love for participating in events like Spelling Bee and Math Counts, and also helping others become confident enough to share their talents with the world.

I have always wanted to have a broader outreach in my community. Beginning in the Santa Ana Math Club, I took on the role of educating the youth around me. Recognizing the impact and significance of my voice on others, I intertwined these values with my passion for STEAM and persevere in everything I do. Volunteering is not just about being kind or selfless; for me, I believe that volunteering will bring me to strongly influence that one young, creative, and imaginative mind in my community.
