First and foremost, its the welcoming community; everyone is so incredibly friendly. Also, their flexibility in accomodating to your schedule and your interests in the type of articles you want to write. Overall, I love that we have a platform for writers, artists, and videographers to showcase their talent in a meaningful way.

It was meaningful for me to volunteer with The Gauntlet as it gave me the opportunity to share my experience and encourage others to try something I tried. It's a vulnerable thing, to share your experiences, ideas, and opinions. The Gauntlet is a platform that I was able to do this: something that I would practice again.

By volunteering for The Gauntlet, I can still feel connected to my school and community, despite the fact that I haven’t stepped on campus in months. It’s also mega sweet to have something not-mindless to do these days. Ultra mega sweet.

What I find most enjoyable in volunteering for The Gauntlet is being able to enhance my writing as well as publish information for the masses. I look forward to learning more from individuals that I have the privilege of interviewing and stories that I have the benefit of writing about. This is an awesome team for budding writers such as myself and I am grateful to be a part of it.

I recently started volunteering with The Gauntlet less than a year ago and have been contributing articles along with photography. I have found the school publication to be a great opportunity for students interested in getting involved, regardless if they have a journalistic background or not. Some of the reasons why I enjoy volunteering at The Gauntlet, is because the staff are very welcoming and friendly and will go beyond to help guide volunteers for support, whether that is suggesting a different story approach, or allowing you to attend events to get a story across.

Volunteering with The Gauntlet encourages me to explore concepts beyond my comfort zone, and build closer relationships with my community. In the last few weeks, I have had the opportunity to improve my writing skills, build relationships with community members and educate myself.I love working with my community to explore diverse opinions and form my own!

Volunteering for The Gauntlet is an amazing experience that allows me to cultivate my writing skills. Getting the chance to connect with people through my articles is rewarding and motivates me to write on various topics. Over the past year, I have learnt a lot of new things and have met wonderful people along the way. I hope to continue my writing journey with The Gauntlet and reach more people with my writing.
