Through my participation in numerous events I have been able to show my concern for my community members, and community. After high school I volunteered as a researcher at the DuPage County Historical Society during the summer of 2014. For my community I dedicated my free time looking up questions and interests of the citizens. After countless hours of research, I wrote up thorough answers to the citizen’s questions. Also, along with the DuPage County Historical Society I participated in many volunteer events such as walking tours, and fairs.
From this book I obtained information on The Freedmen’s Bureau. In March the Bureau was established to do wonderful things for the economy and its people. The Bureau was mainly to help the poor whites and blacks. The Bureau gave food to the hungry, medicine to the sick, and it even established schools for people who lacked education. Jobs were even provided to people who were out of work especially people with families.
In the year 1984, October 1st, two Holy Cross Priests had the mere idea of creating a foundation to help the poor and homeless. By renting a house they started their own idea, by bringing in their first guest and creating something that will forever remain to offer hospitality. Slowly but surely, this organization formed many new members of volunteers to help as well. Not only did the volunteers increase, services were established that this organization offers, and many people from all over the Phoenix area started to send in donations such as clothes, blankets, and medical needs. Andre House of Hospitality is a non-profit organization, and because of this, they rely on “us”, the community, to do our part to help the less unfortunate.
Would you like to donate materials to help us build a garden for Stone Canyon? Stone Canyon is a outdoor learning center and a summer camp. They have schools that come to Stone Canyon. They teach you about all sorts of things like nature,indians, pioneers and who used to live in Larkspur back in the old days. They would like to have a garden because a lot of people do not come there a lot so they would like to have a garden so people can buy some of the flowers and veggies, so more people come to Stone Canyon.
I have been embraced by my department; a group of single mothers far more educated than I am, who nevertheless give me a voice and an opportunity to speak. I sit at the table during community police meetings, and I am there when we gather with the hospitals and organizations that silently move mountains to improve the area. On the weekends, I organize sports and games in the park for kids at risk for gang recruitment. I helped sixth graders plant mums along Main Street; for many, it was the first time they had planted anything. Mums and sports in the park are precious, surface level community projects.

The snow had the community working on something together. I finally got to play in the snow and use that new sled. Later that day, my father huddled the family up to have a little Sunday service in our house. The storm really made us as a family closer. Not only did we share this experience together, but my parent really took advantage of this time we had and used it as a teaching
HPAC stands for “Health Professions Affinity Community” and is a club that is designated to help tackle medical issues that are prevalent in the communities of Northeast Ohio through innovative projects. One of the past memorable projects that I have ever conducted was the garden project. In middle school, I noticed that a lot of students had unhealthy lunches and were unfamiliar with the benefits of healthy eating. To solve this issue, I worked on creating a school community garden that could help spread awareness about the importance of healthy eating. Once the garden was fully grown, I began noticing how successful our garden was.
This side of the solution space is more difficult, because it must not only pass the bureaucratic barriers in the government (ie. differences in political parties’ motivations) but also socio-cultural barriers in society (ie. farmers adamant on sticking to “traditional” agricultural practices for preserving “olden times” or their ancestral ways of farming). Anusuya Rangarajan’s manual on crop rotation has a section called Crop Rotation Effects on Soil Fertility and Plant Nutrition that explains the importance of the education of farmers on the first technical solution mentioned earlier, crop rotation. Through education on good farming techniques, farmers can make educated decisions on their crop rotation sequences and changes to their daily crop-tending practices to naturally maintain the soil’s fertility (Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education, 2012).
SWOT ANALYSIS: Strengths: The first strength of SpokAnimal is that they have great hours of operation. SpokAnimal is open Monday - Friday from 11AM- 6PM, and on weekends from noon - 4PM. This supports SpokAnimal and their goal of increasing community involvement because it give people a wide range of times that people can come in to volunteer. The second strength SpokAnimal has is that Spokane's Mayor Condon and the city of Spokane itself have launched a volunteer initiative, with the hopes of getting more people involved in the community (“Spokane mayor unveils,” 2014). This will support SpokAnimal and the goal of increasing community involvement, because they now have a direct city initiative to help bring attention to their cause.

Alas, then government stabilized and many people earned their jobs back. The Civilian Conservation Corps helped farmers advance their techniques in farming. “The administration also began to educate farmers on soil conservation and anti-erosion techniques, including crop rotation, strip farming, contour plowing, terracing and other beneficial farming practices.” The efforts the nation had to make to conserve and build up the soil were meaningful because it takes almost one thousand years to form and inch of topsoil (How Long Does Soil Take to Form?). The Dust Bowl was caused by a combination of dust, drought, and ignorant farmers. Though many lives were lost, the nation as a whole learned lessons about modern farming techniques.
From Roussos’s presentation to Karner and Castro’s articles, I concur to the idea of change has to begin in the present time in order for each other generations to continue to have resources that humanity has now. The idea that intellectual students could have influential in their community brings the idea that the knowledge young generations gain could help their community to lower the chance of high poverty rate, cities turning into urban sprawls and lower standards of living for humanity. All in all, Roussos, Castro, and Karner are activists that perceive the change humanity needs to make in order to avoid health issue, economic issue in the near
