Clark County Teach One to Lead One Chapter

Community Service: 2013 – 2014

Community Service: 2013 – 2014

Community Service is central to the T1L1 program.  Clark County T1L1 students contributed hundreds of hours in community service during the 2013-2014 School year.

Students in T1L1 are guided through planning and carrying out a service learning project.

Mentors do this each year for several reasons: 

  • We want to help bring the Universal Principles that we teach each week to life.
  • Allow a student to feel valuable to society.
  • Foster an initiative in young people to continue serving the community.

During the 2013-2014 School Year the following Community Service Projects were planned and carried out by students with mentor and teacher guidance.

Fort Vancouver High School

  • Students went to Martin Luther King Elementary in Vancouver, WA to teach what they had learned about leadership to 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders.
  • Students assisted at the Giving Closet in Vancouver, WA in their efforts to provide clothing for low-income families.
  • Students helped the local little league prepare for the upcoming season by striping lines, cleaning trash, and racking the fields.
  • Students wrote letters of encouragement to the Wounded Warriors at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.  Over 150 letters were collected from Clark County T1L1 students.
  • Students made custom colorful pillow cases that were sent to US Armed Forces members in the Middle East to brighten their world.
