Why I Serve Statement:
I serve to better educate myself about the environment that is around me. I serve to enhance the lives of those in underprivileged communities. I serve to combat racial injustice and the systematic oppression of marginalized groups. I serve to set the example for my younger siblings. I cannot lounge around and wait for change to come in the near future, I have to be a part of the change that is happening now. Alternative Breaks is giving me the chance to foster growth and open mindedness within myself. We, the youth, have the power to make a difference and it starts when we take advantage of opportunities such as these.
