Every year our officer team helps the YMBL, Young Men’s Business League, of Southeast Texas to put on a Special Needs Rodeo. Many school’s life skills programs from all over the area come to enjoy a day where they can be themselves and have fun. There is nothing more rewarding to me than to see these kids happy and to give them the chance to feel included. I have been incredibly blessed with all the opportunities the FFA has given me. The FFA takes students today and transforms them into leaders for tomorrow.
It really is amazing seeing how many people want to help out,” (Charland). But no worries, there are still plenty of opportunities to get involved with the organization. Students are encouraged to donate cans and money for the cause, and to follow BABH on social media for updates on booster events and fundraisers. Students can receive a free t shirt by becoming a Hunger Fighter by donating money for the West Alabama Food Bank. You can also show your support for the organization by following BABH on their social medias as well as using the hashtag #TogetherWeCan
We do this at our annual chapter banquet where awards are given, and scholarships are given. Being such an active member, and juggling school along with a part time job at Pizza Hut, I was fortunate enough to get two scholarships from the FFA Alumni Association. These accomplishments and the money awarded are helping me pay for the books I’m using in college today. My hard work as an FFA member and officer had definitely paid
As a student, I participate in many clubs and extracirricular activities to promote myself as a positive leader or influence to others. I always maintain an A gradepoint average so I will have better chances for college and other future educational needs. I participate in National Honor Society, Peer Mediation, and Reading Team for clubs. In National Honor Society, we are prepared for leadership and a general lifelong success. In Peer Mediation we promote the idea of problem solving with the process of doing so by putting peers together.
As a member of several honor societies in high school, I participated in many community service events and hoped to continue serving the community once I began college. I joined the RPI Zeta Eta chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta Women’s Fraternity during my freshman year. Being a part of Alpha Gamma Delta has allowed me to continue serving the community. Throughout the school year, we participate in several events including Relay for Life, Volunteering at the Boys and Girls club, and several philanthropy events set up by our chapter and other Greek houses and organizations on campus. The money raised at our philanthropy events supports Diabetes education and awareness.
While this might not look like a justice seeking opportunity at first glance, it can be a big factor in bringing love and friendship into someone’s life. This supper stops the injustice of loneliness. Within the county, many more opportunities are available to seek out injustices and bring justice to those situations. Being a role model for all justice seekers, Brenda helped start the Sack Pack Program for students who can otherwise go hungry over the weekend. Along with thirteen others, she has made a huge impact on these students’ lives, and has had many benefits of her own.
This is where the students get to perform any kind of talent they possess in front of the school and community members that choose to come. The activities and events we host are always very fun and exciting. I have been a volunteer since my freshman year of high school, which is when they allow you to be a volunteer. Before that you may participate in the activities. I feel that this volunteer project does benefit both me and the recipients, because I get to experience such an amazing act of kindness that changes a person 's life forever.
Therefore, I plan to continue my active involvement in extracurricular activities while I am a college student. As a junior in high school, I was inducted into the National Honor Society for doing exceptionally well in my academic endeavors and actively participating in volunteer events. My contributions through this organization have made a significant impact on both my personal development and my community’s support services. The numerous volunteer projects in which I have participated have prepared me to continue helping others in the future. Through projects such as building houses from the ground-up with Habitat for Humanity, I have developed teamwork skills, discovered my management potential, and increased my social network, all while working to provide services for less fortunate individuals in my community.
The feedback the organization gets is positive and the people that come always return the next year. Another fundraising event is the pancake/Cowboy supper, this fundraiser is the perfect description of what our community consists of which is pride, friendship, and unity. During the time of the
At first, it was just a way to get my community service hours, but the kids later won my heart and there was no turning back. It was a place of unity, a place of hope. It brought people from all over the city of Fitchburg together. Volunteers, such as myself, would come from everywhere to help, the high school kept in touch through their mentors, and the kids would bring different friends along. That unity, that Fitchburg unity, was shown everywhere: at football games, at school events, and even at the grocery store.
Homecoming at PND has many traditions the students and alumni hold very special to them, including dress-up theme days all week, powder-puff football, olympics, trivia contests, the pep rally, homecoming court, the football game, and the dance, all of which I was in charge of. I am able to take on many leadership roles and do them all with a smile! University of Dayton students seem to have a great school spirit, and I would like to add my ideas to build it even
I am very honored to be a student that is considered to be a member of National Honors Society. I have wanted to be a member since I started high school, and I know that this organization will help me in the future. I have worked very hard to get to where I am, and I hope I can continue that in this organization. To be a member I have to show scholarship, character, leadership and service qualities, which I think that I have. In National Honors Society, they recognize students with outstanding grades.
I met with two other students at the festival entrance to assist in receiving canned food donations. We also provided coupons for the food donations as well as expressing a positive interest and thankfulness on behalf of the food bank. Food donations were boxed and stacked for collection at the end of the event for easy transport back to the food bank warehouse. Monetary donations were also accepted on behalf of the food bank during the collection event. We also provided answers to any question that people had in regards to the food bank or the festival.
The back pack buddies was a terrific experience as a student to get involved with the local community and reach out to these families. As well as the program seemed to run, it does indeed need to be fixed in some areas. The food that was provided to families were mostly in cans besides the vegetables that were given. The food could be more of a variety as well as somewhat healthier options however, it is difficult to find healthy options with such a long shelf life. The program can improve by possibly creating more food locations to better help the target population with little to no transportation be able to come pick up their monthly food at a more convenient
