What comes to mind when thinking about service? Do you work in food service, go to a service, take your car to get serviced or do community service? No matter how you use the word service, it still seems to have the same implication: to help someone. We here at Anthony Muñoz Foundation believe service is exactly that: the act of reaching out of your comfort zone to help someone in need. How have you stepped out of your comfort zone for service?
Many don’t believe that young people have the drive to make a difference…let’s challenge that idea. In fact, let’s participate in the 2012 YLS Service Challenge. Specifically, let’s think of service projects that could help your school or community based on your own unique idea. This year’s YLS Service Project is a great way to get involved and make needed changes. So what are you waiting for? Start brainstorming ways that you could make an impact, because I know your minds are filled with awesome ideas!
What need do you see at your school or around your home? Is safety an issue? Are kid’s being bullied and dealing with low self-esteem? Do you feel like your community could do a better job of giving to those in need? Help develop and implement a service project of your own for whatever you are passionate about. Be ready to share these ideas at the Seminar and live out the theme Move Forward, Give Back.
Tell us in the comments below what service means to you. Who knows? It may even spark an idea for this year’s Service Challenge and be helpful for next week’s Service Challenge Friday post…hint, hint.
