Will.i.am & Sesame Street; London 2012 & Volunteering
Will.i.am rocks on Sesame Street. I don't think this song could be any more fun. Love it.
If you want to volunteer for London's 2012 Olympics, then get up nice & early tomorrow morning & get online to this site to apply. I've already registered, but still need to go online starting from 8am GMT (which will be midnight tonight for me in Victoria, BC). I'm signing up for sure!
Good news for teachers & teaching assistants who want to work in London this year & next: your visa will allow you to be in London for the Olympic Games (since most of you will get the Youth Mobility 2 year visa). So, even if you don't volunteer you will experience the games in your schools & classrooms as the students will be very excited. Some of our schools are being transformed for the Olympics, with new gymnasiums, Olympic sized pools, and the like. They've been preparing for a couple of years now. I'm ridiculously excited for how this will change the London I know.
