Purpose and Focus: The purpose and main point of chapter one of Hope and Healing in Urban Education are that youth in low-income environments need extra hope and attention in order to succeed. Shawn Ginwright explains that while it may be difficult to reach these communities, it’s a worthwhile investment of time and resources to improve them. Ginwright uses personal examples of people who have been affected by the struggle of living in a crime-ridden and low-income neighborhood in San Francisco. The eldest sibling examined, Tanya, a community organizer suffered the loss of her younger brother, who was murdered while he was visiting her on holiday from college. While Tanya felt helpless and that her efforts were in vain, she reached a fork in the road and had to decide whether or not she was getting anything effective accomplished.
However, we can prevent this by using or having different programs such as parent family based programs, social development strategies, and mentoring programs. West High School has programs such as freshmen mentoring club, and one of the required courses is called success strategies which introduces you to basic things you need in life such as college financial help and many others. Handling peer pressure from other peers with the right training can lead you down the right path. Having good grades and not falling in the trap of drugs, alcohol, or tobacco use.

Being in high school is time consuming. With some high schools adding community service as a requirement to graduate, it puts on more time for students. Yes, community service is good on college applications and it helps the environment and what not, but it should be optional. High school has enough requirements which includes certain classes that a student must take. Volunteering should not be mandatory because students already have enough responsibilities; they might have jobs, the need to be social and healthy, and if it’s supposed to be voluntary then it shouldn’t be forced.
In the future all these things will be very beneficial to these students everyday lives. 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.
Obama (2012) said, "This job of keeping our children safe, and teaching them well, is something we can only do together, with the help of friends and neighbors, the help of a community, and the help of a nation." Therefore, trying to help America as a whole would require a large number of people, but we can make our school safe. It is a small step toward a safer education. There have been many tries to make schools safer, yet we still hear about new ones weekly. It has devastated so many families.

Thankfully, Morrie helped Mitch realize the unhealthy lifestyle he was living and taught him how to prioritize the things that meant most to him without completely interfering with his work. In regards to my future pathway after high school, Tuesdays with Morrie has helped me realize how important an equal work-life balance is and to feel a sense of fulfillment with the career I choose to pursue. In countless cases, people become so caught up in their jobs that they miss out on the small moments that make life so enjoyable. So to find that equilibrium where you’re working, but still able to continue to be with people you love and do the things you enjoy is
Community Service What Community Service means to me is that you are providing jobs for an organization who wanted you to completed the jobs that has been assign to you and needs to be done in a timely manner . The organization will reward you with Community Service hours for graduation requirement or if you are in National Junior Honor Society you're need more community service hour than the rest of the high schoolers but for non NJHS members in order to graduation you need to have at least 20 hour of Community service hours. I have completed the community services hour by 27 hours of Community service that is on my high school transcript and hoping for more before the end of my senior year.I think the importance of community service is what are you doing to help change the community in a positive way. The community Service activity that I had an opportunity was to volunteering to donate my time to help pass out dinners to the resident at a local senior facility in do so

Point Park 's veteran 's representative Deb Bateman is there to try and help them with any problems. "I am privileged to serve this population, it 's
This is one of my favorite aspects of Claflin because without a safe campus, it is impossible for the students to learn effectively. Also, the administration of Claflin University goes above and beyond to make sure that the new students are successful during their first year in college. I admire the fact that the university cares about the wellbeing of its freshmen due to the fact that most colleges do not pay to the conditions of the new students. It is evident that administration of Claflin University love the students and they want all of the students to become successful
When going to the school it made me realize how much help just one person in a class can be. Just by helping one student sound out words can already better their vocabulary and reading. By giving a little time out of the day to volunteer at this academy you can change a student’s life. What I man by changing their life is by just helping the student become a better student to help them move on to the next grade because they get help back by their disabilities. Being positive with the students at Hope Academy will help them realize how important it is to learn and become a better student and help them understand that they can do anything they out their mind too.
Yes, it’s a pain to have to inspect, sign in, and inspect again for every student. But this is a way of supporting the students to be less destructive with their anger. The students have come to expect the supervision. Besides, signing a sheet is a lot less intrusive than the alternative. POSITIVE REWARD PROGRAM “Students will earn privileges, not lose them!” Lou Thompson (Following months of therapy.)
Therefore, the next attribute you need to survive is working as a team. In order to do so, you need to accept others. Most of the group members were friends in school, however, some, (Paul and Trent), were not fond of each other. In Invitation to the Game, we learn that you may be hesitant at first, however coming together to appreciate each other 's individuality is profound. Just as Scylla says "we 've got to stick together," and "well plan a strategy for living , and the world will suddenly be a less frightening place" (Hughes 14).
