All kids that grow up in bad neighborhoods usually grow up around gangs and drugs. This program would be designed to help get kids off the streets and give them something to do in their free time. Now as this program is for children in need we will provide transportation, as needed, to and from the rehearsal area. We would also provide lunches/dinners for all the kids in the program. The reason why we would provide lunches and dinners is that a lot of kids in need only ever get nutritious meals at school and nowhere else. We would provide a summer play/class that would be 3 days a week from 12-5 pm for half of the summer, a fall play that would be 2 days a week from 5-8 pm, and a spring play, that would be 2 days a week from 4:30-6pm.

We plan to use sports as another program down the road. We understand that some kid’s interests may not be in acting, art, or music. If any kids were involved in any sports and it interfered with the program that would be perfectly fine, we would just require proof that they were at a game or practice during classes. Now this does sound like we want to force them to be in the program, but we are not. We would like them off the streets and if kids that like the “hood life” so called, thought they could get away with sneaking away doing not so smart things and just come back the next day saying they were at practice, they would probably do that. That is what we would want to prevent. As the programs suggest this requires commitment. Without that from the kids we will be left with a huge hole in our pockets. To stop kids from not committing to doing anything in the programs we will require them to help with at least ever other fundraiser we do. We would also ask the parents to help their kids stay committed. Our final solution if this became an issue is to have $50 fee for entry into the program. This sounds absurd due to it being a program for kids in need, but it will not be required for entry. It would be a fee that the kids would need to work off. Other words we would waive off a certain amount of money of that fee after the kid would help with a fundraiser. Another way we would have them waive it off is to go around the area we would be using and
Children in America are faced with different choices every day. Some of these choices can be either good or bad for them. But these children don't really know the consequences of their actions, but the school does. Schools are serving unhealthy and un properly cooked meals to children every single day. These food companies make big money from these schools because the schools just buy the lunches so the kids will eat something. The schools don't really care what goes into the students stomachs, but as long as the school meets the requirements it's okay. Then the students just eat it because it looks and taste good, but they don't have an idea of what their eating is made out of or where it has been before. The government needs to start making school lunches more healthy for these students, if not then then unfortunately the number of obese children will rise.
Schools take control of students every move from the amount of homework they get to
The Boys & Girls Club of Kern County is a non-profit, established in 1996, dedicated to help young individuals in preparing for their futures. The chapter focuses on helping these individuals with character building, doing well in school, and becoming a responsible citizen within the community. This chapter provides services for “over 5,000 children daily at our 3 clubhouses and 49 campus based programs” (Kern County Boys & Girls Club, 2015). The goal of the organization is to make a positive influence on these children lives and their future. The Boys & Girls Club makes it easier for parents to focus on work by taking the responsibility for creating a safe and fun learning environment for these children. By doing so, children in unstable households receive a greater chance at a successful future. In 2013, the club served 2046 children at the Niles Clubhouse, where 87% of the members were on free or reduced lunch programs (Kern County Boys & Girls Club, 2015). This supports the foundation statement of the organization that the community needs to be involved in making programs that will result in a better future for all children. The organization’s partnership with PG&E to provide scholarships and summer internships is one of the most prevalent portrayals of the community working together to create better futures for the children of Kern County. The after school program is the most popular program the organization offers because
This place would be a sort of like a "safe haven" and open to the boys 10 hours of the day. The program would help the boys gain an understanding of life from the most endangered species; the black male. Melanin Men would take the average scrubs, and the misguided youth boys and teach them how to be men.
The program is able to provide support for these student Monday through Friday, barring holidays and school breaks, at no cost to them. If the program did not exist, these students would be unable to receive the same academic support nor a safe environment to play with their peers. Additionally, the students’ parents often come topic up their child after their work day in their uniforms. If the program did not exist, the parents would have to find alternative means of care for their children after school, whether it be they return home on their own from the bus or finding a baby sitter at a costly burden. I connected with these children in this aspect as I was not privy to resources such as these. I neglected my school work that I was unable to finish by the simple inability to ask for help from my family members as they themselves did not know how to assist me with my schoolwork. The program offers a great alternative that would exist if the program was absent in the community. The longevity of the program speaks to the sustainable community relationship that the university students were able to build with the community partners at Lay Park, and the value of the program by the continued support of the Lay Park staff.
School lunches, curriculum focus, and daily activities have changed in elementary schools over the years. The nutritional value in school lunches often meet a bare minimum. Curriculum is focused strongly on idealistic future careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics; but often forget teaching basic healthy habits needed for lifelong health. Physical education is no longer required every single day. Obesity has become an epidemic and not just for adults, it is increasingly affecting children as well. Children spend a generous amount of time in the classroom. They spend more time in school than at home or anywhere else. Therefore, schools have a responsibility in preventing obesity in adolescents by teaching them healthy habits, serving them nutritious food, and providing them with adequate physical activity.
Many public school students on average only get about 20 minutes or less to eat there lunch. Because of that about 1/4 of students lunches will not get eaten and it will get thrown away. School lunches should be longer for many reasons, but the main reasons that school lunches should be longer is because students would be able to have healthier meals, students who have a longer lunch do better in school and because students would have more time to socialize with each other. Longer lunches in school would have many benefits for students.
On a warm sunny day at Palm Desert Middle School, I was having fun playing tag with my fellow students and friends during lunch, when suddenly we were called in to sit back in the cafeteria. Time had seemed to have just flown by. I had barely any time to finish my lunch. Because of all this, I feel that we should have a six to twelve minute longer lunch.
During an average school day, most schools will provide a lunch for their students. After concern that school lunches were helping contribute to the obesity epidemic, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA) began to regulate school lunches. “The Obama administration’s new Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, signed into law last December, sets aside $4.5 billion over 10 years to fund school lunches and child nutrition programs; it requires school lunch programs to double the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables in each meal, reduce calories and expand access to drinking water during meal time. With 31 million children receiving school lunches and 20% of all U.S. children suffering from obesity, the measure should help to improve the food
I chose Government Regulating Public School Lunches for my topic. The price of school lunches have gone up several time within the past few years. The school lunch price is now up to $2.70. I think that government should not regulate the food that schools feed the students at lunch. I think that the schools should pay and get to choose the type and amount of food that they feed the students. I do understand that students are bigger than they were 50 years ago, but the times have changed. Maybe the human body is adapting to the type of food that we were eating. But the government is also paying the school to give free or reduced lunches to some of the students. I think that is the only good part of the government sticking their nose in the school
School lunches can be gross sometimes. We should have the opportunity to leave the campus during our lunch period. Off school campus lunch could save the school money, give students a short break, and this would be great for the students who skip lunch because they don’t want to eat school lunch. Some might think the students may not return or could get in trouble when off campus, but I disagree.
National school lunch programs in California are poor in quality when it comes to the nourishment of our bodies,leaving behind the vitamins and nutrients children and adolescents need in a meal.The investment in school lunches is crudely frail,instead of feeding our children healthier choices we resemble a fast food portion of food. It is comparatively as if one was eating any type of food served in a fast food place, equivalencing the same amount of calories.This happens in most public schools in California not primarily just in Granite Hills High school, although private schools seem to have healthier and a variety meal choices rather than public schools.For this purpose,we should strive to improve better lunch programs quality and not quantity.We
We want the community that we are working with to have healthy and safe areas for their children to grow up in. We believe that our program will be able to provide those spaces. By allowing the children of the community to have areas that are geared towards them and their learning we hope to create a healthy relationship towards children and education. By lowering the crime rates we also hope to see less children joining in on the crime and more children joining in on education and success. Our programs are centered towards helping children find happiness and hope in education as well as helping those who are willing to to their involvement with crime. We offer those who are willing a helping hand in turning their lives around and a chance to better their community and it’s future. The public health of the community in Inglewood is a huge part of our program and we believe that our ideas, volunteers, and dedication can turn the community
