Caroline Helms, Irmo Middle School, Columbia, is a volunteer for the American Red Cross. She started volunteering through a Red Cross project called June Experience, which gives students the opportunity to work with several different agencies after school in the spring. After June Experience ended, Helms continued at the Red Cross, working eight-hour days typing, copying, answering phones, and helping where needed.

"I feel that June Experience let me see the reality of my world."
