◦Constantine Faller (CF): AO IC – Operations Chief, (Basic Needs – Education), Internship Program Coordinator

•From: K. Jacobson (kj): BWH IC/AO Liaison/Mentor

The italicized excerpts are from Halley’s log.

When looking at the Athens’ Own Worker readiness Certification, one of the first items you see on the list is Writing, or more specifically “Strong Writing Abilities, including Spelling.” As a brand new intern applicant, I thought I had submitted an excellent cover letter and application; one free of mistakes. But after my first few conversations with Constantine, he pointed out that there were some distinguishable flaws in my writing especially in the area of spelling and grammar. He recommended I take the time to visit some of the on campus resources that help improve resumes and cover letters, and while I was still in classes, this could act as a first project for my internship.

At first, I didn’t want to believe there was anything wrong with my application. I had spent a lot of time working on building my resume and had read over my cover letter so often that I assumed it was perfect. But after using my campus resources, I realized that there really had been some little mistakes that I had blinded myself to because I had read the materials so many times.

I think that to become a well-developed writer you need to be able to see those little mistakes, and be able to self-correct, but I also think it’s important to take the time to have others look over your work to help you find those mistakes. After the semester ended and I began working on Athens’ Own writing assignments, this became even truer for me. Having Constantine there to check my work before I submitted it meant that I was getting that extra look over before it got published. But I was starting to get embarrassed that each time I wrote something, I had so many little mistakes that were just caused by me rushing the assignment or by me not taking the time to proofread my own work. So I decided that from that point on, it was more important for me to submit as flawless a piece of writing as I could before Con would see it, so that his proofreading would be more big picture, rather than fixing the little things I knew how to fix myself.

I think that the definition of Writing in the Worker Readiness Cert should also be broader than just grammar and spelling. I think it should be that initiative to work through your own work to make sure that you are submitting your best writing possible, each time you write. Even for things as simple as a Facebook post or an email to a friend, your best work should be what you put out in to the world, while not forgetting that having someone help look for the details you might be blind to is still an invaluable tool.

•To: Halley Davidson (HD) – Intern Log Entry #8  June 21 – Athens’ Own at Bonnaroo

  • Constantine Faller (CF): AO IC – Operations Chief, (Basic Needs – Education), Internship Program Coordinator

•From: K. Jacobson (kj): BWH IC/AO Liaison/Mentor

The italicized excerpts are from Halley’s log.

Last week I was able to have the wonderful opportunity to go to Bonnaroo Music festival with some of my lovely high school friends. This was my first music festival, and I was extremely excited and felt blessed that my friends had invited me along. I was also a tad nervous though. After checking weather reports and looking in to the camping situation, I realized I was about to be in the 100 degree sun for five days with seven boys, some of whom almost didn’t remember to pack a pillow. But as the fun days at the camp passed I started to realize that even though I was taking a break from assignments with Athens’ Own, that I was still exercising a lot of the habits that I have been acquiring all along in internship. I like to think of it as a Survival Kit that I carry with me wherever I go.

The first I thing from my kit I used was research and life-long learning. When I decided to attend the festival, the first thing I did was scour the Bonnaroo website looking for information about camping supplies, provided facilities, and lists of activities. I wanted to make sure that I knew everything possible to be safe and have a great time while there. While browsing, I also came across some information about their sustainability efforts, which caught my interest as well. I learned about the ways they promote low waste and low environmental effects at the farm where the event is held.

The second thing I brought with me from my Athens’ Own survival pack was preparedness for incidents. While I’ll always have my FEMA training in the back of my head, there was also a moment where I realized that spending five days at a camp could bring with it a lot of little emergencies. It was then that I thought to stop by the dollar store and to build a little camping first aid kit. I also picked up a few very large reusable water jugs that could be filled and left at camp if someone ever needed water and didn’t have someone to walk the distance to the refill station.

The last thing I brought with me was general wonder and the desire to share the things I’ve learned along the way. Similar to Alyse’s story about the “Ripple Effect” of teaching people new things and making an impact, I took the time to tell anyone who was interested in all of the different efforts that Bonnaroo was making to keep everyone safe and keep the environment safe too. I also wanted to make sure that everyone was aware of all of the safety measures they could take to make their weekend safer, even if it was just to help them get sunblock on their back.

My time at Bonnaroo was so much fun and everyone there was so kind and generous, it really was like living in a community that was focused on the wellness of others. Everyone made the effort to say hello to people and to make sure they had water, or people were even were willing to share food or supplies. I think that it was a great learning opportunity for me to see the real benefits f putting in action some of the things I have learned at Athens’ Own. And I will continue to bring my Survival Kit with me wherever I go.

  • Is not limited to a certain time frame, but is expected as a part of a lifelong commitment to learning. This means that the person is always ready to learn more and to adapt to situations by continuing research.

Methods of Research:

Scientific

  1. Using a theoretical question to build a hypothesis, and to then complete experiments and read past data to prove or disprove the hypothesis.
  2. Completed using the scientific method to asses and current situation and its weak links to attempt improvement.

Situational

  1. When entering an unfamiliar location, one can be expected to acquire the necessary amount of information in order to perform well within that situation.
  2. As the move through the situation, being able to adapt to new information and to continue on the path of learning.

Professional

  1. When starting a professional job or project, making sure that the person understands the goals and history of their customer or employer creates a more productive and less redundant work environment.
  2. Includes reading provided materials, but also taking personal initiative to scope out possible supportive documentation, and to become familiar with the methods used in that business. (Communication software, specific training requirements, management methods, etc.)

    • To: Halley regarding her Intern Log Entry #6   Researching Athens’ Own
      • Constantine Faller, AO IC – Operations Chief, (Basic Needs – Education), Internship Program Coordinator
    • From: K. Jacobson, BWH IC/AO Liaison/Mentor

HD:  After taking the time to first identify the importance of research, and then to create a definition of research, I have spent time reading up on Athens’ Own to become well acquainted with their history by completing research that will be imperative for my internship. While conducting this research, I have been reading information that has been provided to me by Constantine in his Google Drive Folder. Some of these documents include Excel sheets with prices and product lists, documents with descriptions and regulations for the food packaging and production, and other article containing a wide range of useful information and photos.

I made copies of certain documents that I thought would particularly useful in a marketing situation, and even uploaded some information that I have stored on my computer that I thought could be a beneficial addition to the Athens’ Own Drive. Later on I even printed some documents that I though could be beneficial resources for me to have on hand as I work through my journey with Athens’ Own.

This project of reading up on Athens’ Own has been extremely beneficial especially after talking about how research is so essential. I am now applying and seeing firsthand how useful it is to have read already completed and shared information. Now, if I have a specific question about product pricing I don’t need to ask Constantine, that information has already been published in an easy to rad format in the Drive.

The next step for me is to go through the website and to acquire even more background information on Athens’ Own.
