Yayasan Usaha Mulia (YUM) is a non-profit organization that has been empowering the lives of Indonesians through health, education and community development for more than 40 years. I joined the YUM Farm team as a treasurer and a deliverer.
Picture of the team:
As a treasurer, I have been in charge of overlooking the financial management. When we received the products from the farm, we would sell them to the staff whom have ordered. What I did was calculating and recording the money down in the system.
I have achieved these following learning outcomes:
LO1- I identify my strengths, I identify areas for growth: Since I have a passion in filmmaking, I used all my skills to produce a showcas video for the YUM Farm team. I personally took responsibility for this video project by being both the director and the writer. However, from this experience I gained a lot of new knowledge on how to film with a green screen. Prior to this, I have never used it before and it was quite difficult because when I replaced the green screen with white background, it would make the person look as if he has red skin. After watching many youtube videos and searching through the internet, I finally found out how to solve this problem.
LO4 – I show commitment, I persevere: The YUM farm team only operates during Tuesday lunch time and I have never missed a day for nearly a year.
LO5- I demonstrate collaborative skills, I recognise benefits of collaboration: Since we only have less than 55minutes during lunch time, we divided the tasks so each of us have something to do. For instance, I would make the receipts and record the transactions. Another student would deliver to the primary school while the other delivers to the secondary school.
LO7- I recognize ethical issues, I act ethically: During the handover to the year 12s, we made sure they got the hang of the whole process. We took the handover very seriously by monitoring them for two weeks.
