Community and Service
What is my Community?
We are all members of many communities. As members, we have to share in the responsibility of making sure they are the best possible communities in which to live. A COMMUNITY is a group of people living, working, or playing together. Some communities are small and others large. Your family is a community. Your class is a community. Your school is a community. Charlotte is a community, as well as North Carolina. In fact, we are all members of the largest community of all….the WORLD!
Why Should I Care About My Community?
Since you are part of your community, you are actually helping yourself when you work to maintain and preserve your community. The more people that care about their community, the happier the world will be. Imagine how the world would be if people did to others what they would like to have done to themselves.
Serving the community is an opportunity to participate in activities based upon your personal talents and interests. The main focus of community service is to instill an awareness of yourself and the role you play in your community and the world. It is an unpaid service you provide your community, not your family.
Community service is a service you perform for the benefit of your community.
