Abstract
The community is our people; those people are our friends and neighbors, our friends and neighbors make up the world. So what could make the community better? Studies show volunteerism helps to change people’s lives, makes you feel better about your contribution; whether that be financially or with your time, and help promote a better quality of life for others.

There are many ways to volunteer your services; you could read to children in a hospital, donate financially to an organization, provide meals to the sick or elderly, mentor a child/children, help organize or attend events to raise money, donate or distribute toys during the holidays, or even assist in building a ...view middle of the document...

How am I doing this? I am doing this by sponsorship, I am reaching out to the community for assistance, I am spreading the word that we can all have the opportunity to provide a better life for a child and with this program, we are doing just that.
We are able to provide for families the most up to date systems, allowing them the chance for children and adults to be up to date on technology, so they can seek advancement, understand and learn from programs out there, complete homework assignments and become more confident in their ability to solve problems, utilize search options and keep them off of the streets.
Studies show that the more you pay attention and teach children, the less likely they will fail at life, you won’t have to worry about them associating with the wrong kinds of crowds, ending up in prison or jail and have a better outlook on life. Why wouldn’t we want that for our future?? It takes a lot to be a child these days; it takes a great person to make a child an extraordinary being by giving back to them and to demonstrate exceptional leadership roles for them to look up to. My name is Derrick, and I am a VOLUNTEER.
