This summer I was given a great opportunity through Generation Citizen called the Community Change Fellow program. The Community Change Fellow program is a chance for young people to be a part of a real organization, and to teach them how to make change in their communities. Generation Citizen was introduced to me through my classroom, they would come in once or twice a week and we would work on a common issue in our community that we would like to change. This was a pretty fun thing to do other than just sit through another day of English class.
