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. We meet regularly to support one another and build
I offered my time during the next semester to help work further on the yearbook. So for the past two months I’ve been revising and adding little things to the yearbook. For me personally, I enjoyed working on the yearbook. Helping create something that future students can reflect back on to remember little things about school. In these past two weeks, I managed to let someone change into my lane, made a fabulous ice cream cake, and have been volunteering help to finish my school yearbook.
My hard-work, commitment, and responsible behaviour was recognized and I was promoted to Shift Supervisor after a year of working with Tim Hortons as a Team Member. I have also built very strong relationships with my co-workers and employers. Working with Tim Hortons has helped me become more inviting to new people in my life, and has made me able to adapt to change better. It has helped my social skills as well as my personal skills. One the
I have always adored reading. So my freshman year of high school and beyond was spent checking out multiple books at there. I heard one day that they needed volunteers to come in during the morning of the school days. So I began volunteering there each day that I was able to. Community service is a big deal at my high school.
I truly enjoyed being someone he depended on and confided in, in his last years. I strongly believe that my passion to become a social worker stems from the bravery and comforting nature of being there for my grandfather. My grandmother is a Social Worker now and I always admired and appreciated the genuine work and service she has done, for example, visiting her sickle cell patients on holidays, being able to mentor undergraduates, and the various volunteer opportunities she has done. I feel that I can be an advocate for those who are neglected or abused. I feel that the Master’s in Social Work program would give me the theoretical foundation as well as the intensive training that is necessary to become a successful social worker.
It is an honor to not only have the chance to view others art and help engage the community with these events, but I am also pleased to say that last spring quarter one of my digital art pieces were chosen to be presented as well. Having my art viewed by others in the art gallery was very exciting, and I will continue use my art as a way to communicate to my community.
I participated in Mathletes for my junior and senior year. With the help of my 3 teammates, we placed ourselves 1st in the last meet. When I was working for the Wonder General Store, it taught me how to communicate well with my coworker to provide an excellent customer service and providing nice profit for the store. I also worked during the summer doing landscaping job that required teamwork to get the jobs clean, consisted, and on
Throughout my whole experience at Centennial, I have always wanted to join the National Junior Honor’s Society, so I feel very honored to have this opportunity to apply. Last semester, I was part of our school’s Student Council. Being in that group allowed me to see how important leadership is in our daily lives, in and outside of school. I also learned a whole lot about service, considering we had to complete one hour every week. All of these things are important, but the thing that I thought spoke to me personally was this year’s theme.
For example, some of the events are Mental Illness Awareness week and NAMI walk. I was never aware of this organization until attending this class and going to the walk and I think it’s an amazing organization. The NAMI walk was to raise money to help the organization out. Before the walk I really liked the idea of collecting books for the book drive in memory of Melissa. I was really excited to get children’s books that I had in my bookshelf that I don’t read anymore, and I thought someone else could enough these books.

Among various volunteering experiences, McKenzie says on a typical day she goes to the Montgomery County Job Center and does nails there. Her work as a volunteer entails decorating nails at birthday parties and participating in fundraisers to raise money for nail polish supplies. According to McKenzie, the most valuable parts about being a volunteer includes all of the friendships and relationships she has established with other volunteers and as well as some of the patients. For McKenzie, working with Alanna and the Polished Girlz has impacted her as a person as it allowed her to, “be more open and receptive to the thoughts, feelings, and needs of others”. In regards to seeing a young person such as Alanna undertaking such a huge and powerful project and vision, McKenzie says, “she makes me feel inspired to start something too, but I’m just not sure what.” Alanna and the Polished Girlz story undoubtedly shows the power
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.
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.
