Community service is exactly what it sounds like: services that you do to benefit your community -- community service can take a lot of different forms since there is SO much you can do to help folks out in your area.
But that might leave you wondering where to start? (Spoiler alert: this is where you start!)
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. often spoke of a Beloved Community–-one that requires acts of service based on justice and equal opportunities.
Whether that’s collecting, teaching, volunteering, or something else, you should be able to find something to inspire you to get out there and do.
