Community service has always been part of my daily activities. When I was in kindergarten I volunteered to make cookies with the elderly people at the nursing home. It is still the ONLY recipe that I have memorized. Since then I have always been involved with serving food to the homeless, running a community leadership group and doing good in the community. It is important to model to others the importance of doing the right thing. I have learned a tremendous amount from the student leaders throughout this process. It is amazing what students are capable of when they are encouraged to push forward with their ideas.
DO GOOD THINGS
Most kids don't think of serving food at a food shelf. Most kids don't volunteer at nursing homes. Most kids don't have the resources, but what if they did?
Do Good Things, is a program that gives our younger generation a chance to help and volunteer in communities and teaches them how to become better and stronger leaders.
