We can join in a variety of ways:
- Young adults in grades 7 – 12 and their teachers can look for projects of value for their community.
- Local non-profit staff can request projects for inclusion in the community checklist.
- A community member with sewing skills may be interested in making blankets for their local animal shelter.
- A carpenter may be interested in making beds for children in need of one.
- An organization that fosters animals might like to come present their work to the kindergarten class.
All project work will need updating on the community checklist . Each grade, K – 6 will manage this information in their topic area. In a sense each grade is an office for the service topic area. They meet with non-profit staff and develop a year-long dialogue, learning about needs and discussing solutions. The community checklist lives at each grade level for updating and can be shared online
We are growing a generation that will be highly educated in all of these areas and have community building skills. They will know that when they want to pursue a project, or join to help one underway, that they need to make sure their involvement is listed on the community checklist.
