Guidance and support are the fuels that drive these things in a community. My religious personality inspires me to state: first, a servant of one man is a leader for others to follow into service and, second, a leader of many who provides for many is a servant of one, that “one” is God. To be good, in my terms, is to experience God in our lives, to develop within our society and to spread the goodness to others in the world. Since, not all people believe in my God, they will feel the goodness that He is of, but not take it to be Him.

The students will help the organization voluntarily while giving the facility the chance to interact with professionals. In conclusion, this community service learning proposal for the school is a great idea that may produce new experiences for all involved.

Furthermore, service learning has continually made an impact in a student's life, school, and community by empowering him or her through the experience. Since service learning is growing and remaining in colleges, it is clear that students have not objected this incorporation within their curriculum, but accepted it's benefits. Service learning is not mandatory to a student if he or she is against it, then he or she can object to take the course, which includes volunteering. However, if service learning is accepted and viewed as fair, perhaps service learning can be implemented in other community colleges in order to make students realize they have potential to make a difference in themselves, their community, and the world.

This will come when seeking a desire to walk close with God and spending time with Him.

Therefore, by having the local churches engage adolescents in missionary work gives them the amazing opportunity to do so. Overall, as more teenagers become independent and accustomed to acting how an average adolescent would, it is crucial to include a sense of faith in their everyday lives in order to achieve balance and produce adequate young adults.
The theology course defines disciple as someone who chooses to follow Christ for the purpose of becoming like him in every part of life. From my service for the Young Athletes Program, I learn to serve the community as Jesus did. To a accept others even if they may not match the ideal societal definition of normal. Moreover, as a disciple of Jesus, I learn to view kids with down syndrome as gifted children’s with great abilities; they’re no different from any other child.
