Our 2021-2022 NHS/NJHS students did an amazing job of serving in their neighborhoods and communities this year. As part of their membership requirements they must serve and be active outside of school and their homes. Here are some of their experiences this year.
This group of youth spent the evening picking up trash at the local recreation area.
This weeding for a couple that had been hospitalized due to COVID.
These wreaths were made for a local care center.
Max has spent many hours transcribing and verifying transcriptions of headstones.
The website is www.billiongraves.com. It is really easy to do. The website shows a photograph of a headstone, and you view it and input the information into the required fields on their website.
Victoria sewed scarves to send overseas to deployed troops. This was her first time sewing and she did great!
Asfiya said: My old mosque from where I used to stay in Ohio, was having a series of special religious classes for the next month. They asked me if I could take the recordings of each 2 hour class - held on Zoom, and upload it onto YouTube. So everyday, my job was to download the Zoom recording, put in the uploading information ( Title, Description, Broadcasting), make a thumbnail, and upload the final recording onto the mosque’s Youtube Channel. Then I needed to send the YouTube video link to the class coordinator who then sends the link into the class group chat. It was a simple job, but I like doing it!
Kate said: I worked with a group of figure skaters to create an art piece that is now showcased at the Bonanza Art Park.
There are many opportunities to serve all around us. If you are looking for opportunities, www.justserve.org is a good place to start.
