We estimate 6 student(s) from 10 to 12 will work on this entry.

Description of Our Community: For the past 20 years, not only has Ms. Lihwa Lin been the mainstay of the voluntary crossing-guard team in Xisong Elementary School, but also played an important role in the voluntary crossing-guard team in Songshan District. In addition to the schoolchildren of Xisong, she guards all the schoolchildren in Taipei City via the transfer of her experience in volunteering.

Project Description: Most of time, we think crossing guards are nothing. However, we can going to school and going home safely without them.

This project is aimed to understand why these voluntary crossing guards are willing to serve us under the risks and even without pay. We therefore focus on interviewing Ms. Lihwa Lin who has been a voluntary crossing guard for over 20 years.

We have contacted Ms. Lin many times. Thanks to Ms. Lin who we call Auntie Lin. Auntie Lin believes that all efforts will be worthy as schoolchildren can be safe on their travel between school and home. The volunteers never ask for any payback. They set a good example of devoting themselves to others for us.

We had done the video-taping twice with Auntie Lin, and every time Auntie Lin told us a lot of being a votary crossing guard. We hope we can invite more people to be voluntary crossing guards to serve others via this project.
