No matter when you facilitate a reflection activity, your goal should be to help volunteers express their thoughts about the the project and answer three questions:
- What? What issue(s) is being addressed? What did you notice happening around you during the project? What were the results/outcome of the project?
- So What? What did you think about during the project activity? What affect do you think this activity has had on those intended to benefit from it? How has today's work affected you personally?
- Now What? What are the larger issues that caused the need for you to participate in this service activity? How did your efforts help? What more needs to be done to improve these problems? How will you apply what you have learned here in the future?
