I have been involved with several service activities throughout my life. Some of the more recent services that I have participated in include: Helping set up and helping teach underprivileged children at the Children's Defense Fund Freedom School. Here I volunteered my time during the summer helping set up the classrooms and supplies, moving and unpacking and organizing; supplies, food, and donations the summer program. I also helped out this summer program by checking people in and out, guiding and directing people where to go, and unload and load the children onto the busses. During the summer I also volunteered a week of my time to be a “buddy” to a special olympiad at their Special Olympics Athletic Retreat. Being a “buddy” included self regulation, chaperoning on field trips one on one, assisted with self care skills when they where needed. Also this summer I volunteered my time for four weeks being a counselor in training at the Stowe YMCA. This included reading to the campers, helping serve meals to the campers, Chaperoning on field trips with the campers and being camp counselors to campers in grades pre-k through fifth grade. I also have been participating on my temple’s youth group advisory board. There I help determine, plan, organize, and run group activities and social events for the youth groups. I have been doing this for the past three years. This group also partakes in several community service projects throughout the
“Only a few more blocks to go,” I vividly remember telling my friend Keith and Robert at the time. It was a breezy, sunny Saturday morning in October and we were walking from block to block picking up any trash in sight. Giving up a Saturday morning if watching the cartoon to help keep the neighborhood as clean as possible felt good. There was no other group of young men I would rather spend my time with. When I was in 6th grade my counselor, mentor, and basketball coach at the time, Roshaun Bowens, started a mentorship program in the school by the name of Young Men’s Group (YMG). YMG was a mentorship group that founded in order to teach life values to a group of inner-city kids at the school, who may otherwise not receive those valuable lessons elsewhere. My time spent in YMG was incredible, and giving up a couple of Saturdays to clean up the neighborhood was where my service started but it wasn't what shaped my perspective on service.

Lastly, I currently represent the “Citizenship” trait of National Honor Junior Society by participating a tennis club in my community.

This charity was founded in 1969 by activist Marianne Heller. It is one of the closest charities to the university as it focuses on helping children in inner-city Toronto. By donating to Inner City Angels the RBSA will be donating to a charity that focuses on promoting arts education and ‘hands-on’ training for inner city children who do not have the facilities to get an arts education. This foundation helps youths to realize their full creative potential by pairing them with arts organizations, educators and artists who educate them on the arts and work with them on creative art projects. This, ultimately, helps the youth with their personal development as they will be working in a communal environment with other youths. The organization’s various programs include; Graphic Stories, where artists assist youths in
Over the past two years (2014-2016) I have participated in the National Junior Honors Society. As a member, I commit to completing community service and to learning among my peers in order to develop into a superior leader. I have taken part in activities such as fundraisers, team building activities, and several forms of community services such as working in a soup kitchen, daycares and organizing social events. Recently, I volunteered for a week as a vendor at a temple in Tacoma, raising money for the establishment during the Cambodian New Year festival.
Last May, I traveled with Alternative Breaks to New York for community service. During this service, I worked with Meals on Wheels who dedicate their time to provide food for the elderly of Manhattan. As I delivered the food to the seniors, I got a sense of fulfillment because I made them smile by providing them with food. Thus, I chose MDC’s Single Stop because I wanted to make a difference in my home campus by providing and assuring nourishment to those that do not have it just like I did in New York. As my first two years of college comes to an end, I wanted to leave a mark of my own here at home at Miami Dade College North Campus. During the month of September, I decided to partner up with a few of my peers to serve at MDC’s Single Stop.
While I’ve only been a member of the National Art Honors Society for two years, I’ve always been an active participant in the classroom, assisting and collaborating with my teachers and students. This year, I was elected Treasurer of the National Art Honors Society. The position of president was extended to me as well, but my teachers and parents convinced me to focus on my core courses.

A Balanced Scorecard can be defined as a “performance management tool which began as a concept for measuring whether the smaller-scale operational activities of a company are aligned with its larger-scale objectives in terms of vision and strategy” (Wikipedia 2009, ¶ 1). Scents & Things will need to develop a balanced scorecard that will assist in meeting and help define the company’s values, mission, vision, and SWOT analysis. The balance scorecard is made up of four perspectives; financial, customer, learning and growing, and internal process. This paper will define each of the four perspectives objectives, performance measures, targets, and initiatives. The paper will also show how the perspectives relate

I’ve stayed home innumerable nights this year working hard from the bus stop to the time I go to bed because I strive to go the extra mile. I have twelve years of school ahead of me, and I am not afraid of the hurdles it will bring because I know how to work hard for the long haul. I will apply this strength in the university as well. With the same skill, I’ve pushed through the adversities in altruism, the primal reason as to why I deserve this scholarship. As an altruist, I have put hundreds of hours of community service into the City of Howell, impacting the lives of children and adults each day. As an award-winning Vice President of a volunteer board for teenagers, we plan and carry out events to get students off the streets and into our welcoming teen center in downtown Howell. At times, our teen center faced closure and disapproval from government officials, but I pulled my board’s representatives over each hurdle and into our new building. I plan on continuing my charitable efforts around the globe, and I would like to make that mark on the world with this
