Community Service

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”

     Students who join the Corona High Community Service Club are able to answer Martin Luther King Jr.’s question with confidence. As of right now, Community Service club needs YOU to make a difference.

     The president, Breelyn Betts, shares her main goal for the club in the 2016-2017 school year, “We want to get more involvement this year in our events that we do so we can make the most impact.”

     It’s not too late for you to get involved, either! Be sure to listen to the announcements to get info on when the next meeting will take place. Meetings will take place in J1 during first lunch and J8 during second lunch. 

     There are so many benefits in store for someone who wants to join Community Service. You can meet new friends and help the community while you’re at it. Officer Lauren Butler, a Junior, explains one of the main reasons she joined the club “A lot of my friends were doing it so I knew that we could all do the community service events together.”

     A variety of events are scheduled for this year from picking up trash to visiting assisted living centers. Vice President Melanie Hoang shares how impactful the club can be on the community, “…We always go to this place called Peppermint Ridge to help disabled people and then the senior centers so yeah, I think we make a difference.”

     There are also academic benefits that come when one joins Corona High’s Community
Service Club. Colleges and jobs are always looking to accept and hire the best people they can. One way students are able to stand out when compared to others is by how many volunteer hours they have completed. Gabby Enriquez, a Senior, concedes that “it looks good on college applications.”

     So whether you want to meet new friends, reconnect with old ones, help your college applications, or just help people in need… Community service club is eager for you to join. If you’re still not sure that this club is right for you, stop by Mrs. Brown’s class in J8 for more information. Happy volunteering!
