Danie – Diverse Culture and Ethnicities

I am currently in a volunteering program called Youth in Philanthropy (YIP). In this program we provide volunteer services to nonprofit organizations once a month. For our November trip, my group went to a youth homeless shelter. We replanted their garden, painted several rooms and organized rooms. I love volunteering in my community because it [...]

Matthew – Make It Happen

From the beginning of High School, I was motivated to find a way to explore other opportunities to help those in need in my community. Working with a classmate, I began a high school chapter of OWW, Operation Warm Wishes. Launched in September 2015, the Make It Happen Club, has already expanded to affiliated chapters [...]

Arly – Portraits of Survivors

I took portraits at my local shelter, which houses couples, families, and individuals who have been affected by homelessness or domestic violence. Inspired to use my love of photography to help others, I held 17 photo sessions over eight months. The participating shelter residents received a professionally printed 8x10 photo, framed in their chosen style, [...]

Shemia – Building Shelves That Help Rebuild Lives

I have been committed to helping the homeless since I began volunteering at the food bank as a young boy and have served at many local shelters over the years. Last summer I found that one of them was in need of some construction. It had a large storage garage stacked from floor to ceiling with [...]

Salmabella – Walk To End Alzheimer’s

Over the last two years, I have had the great opportunity of helping those with Alzheimer's disease. It all started three years ago when my grandmother passed away because of this disease. Her death inspired me to go out and make a change in the community for those with Alzheimer'€™s. I started this journey by [...]

Neyah – Activities Day At The Park

Just over one-third of U.S. adults, about 97 million, are obese. This number is expected to rise to 42 percent by the year 2030; however, some forecasters have predicted the number could easily be over 50 percent. Plus as someone who loves sports and being active I feel like everyone should stay healthy so they [...]

Lindsey – A Blood Drive

I, along with other members of the global leadership committee in my school's National Honor Society chapter, were put in charge of conducting my school'€™s first blood drive of the year. We had to contact the Red Cross to set up a date for the blood drive, then find eligible donors within our school. The [...]

Hamza – Smiling Faces

As part of my Healthcare service challenge, I volunteered for a local hospital. At first I didn't really get to help with things that mattered such as helping the patients. I was only allowed to restock things. I restocked gloves, medicines, toothpastes, toiletries, and other stuff, for a good five months until I was able to [...]

Revekka – Fidget Quilts

Ever since I was a little girl, I have been fascinated with the idea that one person can make another person feel better by simple acts of kindness and care. I always wanted to be one of those people who could bring a smile to the face of someone who is suffering or in need. [...]

Andrea – Hospitable Understanding

My service project was at a community health center / clinic mostly for low income families. However, not necessarily do only low income families go there for their services. There are numerous places to work in this hospital. Therefore, for this project I had to do multiple activities. Three times out of the week I would [...]
