Community service is not only about receiving hours to put on a resume, but it is something you do to guide others and make them feel better. An example of this was when I was part of the MLK day of service at Stockton University two years in a row where I sewed pillows and pins to support the unfortunate; this was a great experience where I was able to make new friends and contribute to the society.Service is not only about being part of large organizations, but it is also about doing small deeds for others, like staying after school and contributing to the club even if it is not mandatory. I also was part of Project Green where I picked up garbage on the beach and planted marram grass. I am the type of person that likes helping the elderly and the needy; so when I go to India, giving clothes and food to the boys and girls who have nothing to eat and sleep with an empty stomach is a priority to me during my trip. The Atlantic County Library is also somewhere I volunteer; helping young children read books and organizing craft days on the weekends.
78). The school strictly adheres to Oregon Department of Education laws regarding education as well as Beaverton school district policies.

Corporate social responsibility is important for our society and there are many businesses that engage in strategic plans to improve social problems within the communities. Jumpstart is one of those businesses. A non-profit organization, Jumpstart aims to improve education across the United States by focusing on early childhood education, primarily children aged 3 to 5 years. By exposing children to educational activities at an early age, Jumpstart believes they will grow to love learning and perform better in their future education. Jumpstart has initiated numerous campaigns to expand their missions and raise funds for their programs.
But while it has succeeded in that, it is also believed that tougher rules, such as DUI rules and seatbelt safety rules have also played a part in this decrease. However, this higher drinking age hasn’t reduced drinking, its only “driven it underground,” Gabrielle Glaser states in her NY Times article. It has been driven underground to the riskiest settings, high school parties and frat parties that are unsupervised. This age raise segregates the drinking away from adults that can model moderation in drinking. If an 18-year-old high school senior is shown by his/her parent(s) how to drink responsibly and in moderation, I believe that it would greatly help in reducing the chance of making bad decisions by overdoing it, such as driving while drinking.
I gained knowledge about Red Ribbon Week from several of the agents. Now, if you go to public or private school, you are probably aware of this special week as many schools have drug education activities each October, but I am homeschooled so this was a new concept for me. Red Ribbon Week happens each October with the purpose to present a visible commitment to living a safe, healthy, and drug-free life. The campaign is designed to create awareness concerning the problems related to the use of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs and to support the decision to live a drug-free lifestyle. The National Red Ribbon Campaign is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation reaching millions of young people during Red Ribbon Week, October 23-31 each year.
As a freshman in my first year as a member of BHSN Habitat for Humanity, I had many meaningful volunteering experiences. In January I helped organize and clean up the new Habitat for Humanity warehouse. Cleaning up the warehouse was a tough yet a rewarding job, and I was also able to meet other Habitat for Humanity members from IU and from BHSS. Leading up to Evening for Habitat I solicited businesses for donations with my senior partner. Soliciting was a very gratifying experience because it exposed me to the willingness of people to help out the community.
