Volunteering is a way of helping others. It is giving a person 's time and ability to help someone who may be in need of help. Not only does volunteering help others, but what they may not know is that it can be helpful to themselves. It is a great way for someone to interact with others in their community. It gives someone that time to themselves while also creating bonds when they are doing the greater good.
Parents that put their needs and wants before their child and did not care if they had a good Christmas or not. If that is not selfish than I don’t know what is. It had a big impact on me and I wanted to start giving back to my community. I gave kids a Christmas that their parents could not afford. I went to churches, thrift stores, hospitals and knocked on my neighbors do to pass out toys.
Personal Narrative Tackle football at Waterford Sabercats was hard for me when I first started. The first week was running non stop and it wore me out. “You are almost done,” I remember my dad telling me when we were doing an exhausting dill. But as the week progressed, I got used to the conditioning, but it still hurt.
All Year Round Schooling Some people would not mind having an all year round school, but why? When people think of year-round education they immediately relate it to no summer vacations. But having an all year-round education has a couple good things to offer. Back in the day when schools had just began, summers were necessary because children needed to help their families by working on their families farms, but nowadays it isn't like that. One you would not have such a long break from school to forget everything you learned from the school year before.

As well as performing chores about her own household, Antonia loves to help her neighbor, Mrs. Burden around the house. However, after her father commits suicide, Antonia has little time for activities other than labor. In just eight months, Antonia developed from a child into a tall, strong young girl who could hold her own while conducting the farm work. During this time, Antonia had often helped her older brother with the men’s tasks, such as plowing and harvesting. Furthermore, Antonia took any job offered to her in order to earn wages for her family, such as helping Mrs. Burden in the kitchen or becoming a cook for the Harlings.
As time and age inch around the corner, the items that are gathered throughout the years become memorabilia. Many of those items are valued less because there was not much love that went into making them. However, my parents are true reminders that homemade gifts are greater than any store-bought gift. Since I was a baby, Christmas has been a magical time of year for my family. There were red and green lights glimmering around the house, family members smiling, and mounds of gifts underneath the tree just waiting to be ripped open by my little hands.
My sophomore year, I spearheaded our effort to raise money for LGBTQ youth homeless shelters. We created and sold t-shirts, painted faces, and handed out flyers at the 2015 White Squirrel Festival, bringing in $600 for the Trinity Shelter. This year, we are working to raise money for Flint, Michigan so they will have clean water to drink. Being a large part of the club itself is another way I serve the community. The Brevard High School Acceptance Club was founded on the principles of loving one another, creating a better school climate, and spreading compassion and acceptance.
This example shows how the tree never realized that the boy would grow and drift away but she continuously loved the boy. Even though the boy moved on she could never do that. In the book The Giving Tree the tree is represented as a motherly figure who cares and loves the tree as it’s child.
Furthermore, 100 community service hours should be a requirement for high school graduation. Since many teens already have a lot on their plates with homework and extracurricular activities they often put themselves first above helping others. Also, many teens spend their weekends locked up in their rooms or just watching tv all day, they could do something very productive with the time they are wasting. With this in mind, community service not only helps your community but it helps get students out of their houses.
As a Christian, I understand the importance of service. I understand that it is almost a necessity. Some people have so little, yet somehow they manage to pull through the day. It is the job of people who were blessed with more to give back and help those who are unprivileged.
My family and I celebrate Christmas and gift giving every year without having to be forced in any way. From Christmas shopping, decorating the Christmas tree, making Christmas cookies, singing carols, and gift giving, my family and I have always followed the "rules. " We are motivated and influenced by society to acknowledge the Christmas holiday and act of gift giving because it is what our culture has been governed to do. Once the "language" of gift giving has been learned and enforced, it then becomes a necessity in society that people automatically follow without
During the past few years, I have had many volunteer and leadership opportunities both in and outside of school. Truth be told, I’ve never been the most outgoing person, but many of these opportunities have helped me to step outside my comfort zone, and take leadership various situations. Through my volunteering experiences, I’ve learned many lessons. I believe that going to Archbishop MacDonald high school will continue to push me outside my comfort zone and become a great leader in my community.
During my time on the team, I have been the Sentinel for one year and the Secretary for two years. Being on the officer team has helped me become more organized and a better leader. From helping to organize meetings with the other officers, to attending FFA conventions, I have gained a great deal of responsibility. Future Farmers of America has also provided me with many opportunities to help make an impact in my community through volunteer work. Every year our officer team helps the YMBL, Young Men’s Business League, of Southeast Texas to put on a Special Needs Rodeo.
Throughout those years, I have worked several half-marathons, which helped out those events that needed volunteers. I also worked several hours volunteering at the local Hennepin county library in 8th grade, which was one of my favorite community service experiences. The Feed My Starving Children is also an organization that I have helped out in the past few years. During these community service experiences, I was focused and I put in a great deal of effort since I knew that my contributions would directly benefit the community. If accepted into the National Honor Society, I know that I will contribute towards community service projects with much
