  • Going from “Why Do I Have To?” to “Wow, It Does Matter!”

    From my own childhood growing up in a low income ethnic background on the receiving end of volunteerism, I was also taught to never hesitate to help anyone outside of our family be it neighbors, friends, church members, victims of disasters, etc. (No matter how much my family struggled week to week). This continued through my adult life, where I have participated in a wide variety of food, clothing, fund drives, giving blood, building and repairing homes, picking trash, cooking and serving meals, and even positively protesting for action to better a situation for those in need. My real life personal experiences helped me understand how civic learning and democratic engagement enhances a person's growth as an individual, as a participant within a group and as a member of a community.
