“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people could change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead
This week, we look at asset nine, Service to Others. I know it sounds rather like a parent favoring one child over another, but asset-wise, this one is near the top of the list for me.
The definition according to the Search-Institute is that a “Young person serves in the community one or more hours per week.” Nationwide this asset is shared by 51 percent of those surveyed. Here locally, the number is identical. It’s nice to know that half of the kids you know are helping to benefit the well being of others.
Today, I wanted to mention three different projects that I’ve heard about, all being done by our local youth, concerning projects ranging from Los Alamos to Haiti.
The Chamisa Elementary Student Council is currently running its annual Pennies with Purpose drive. The students collect pennies throughout the month, brainstorm locations to send the money and then submit a ballot to every member of the student body to allow them to vote where to send the money.
