Mandatory Community Service

Original post made by Kathy L, Stoneridge, on Oct 26, 2008

Pleasanton High Schools have a mandatory community service program which the high school children must complete. I think this is a wonderful program that instills social responsbility into their character. I am an avid volunteer who has had the pleasure of working side by side with these children and I wanted to share some insight which I've experienced.

My daughter did her community service through the Tri-Valley YMCA this past summer. She had a GREAT experience and while she was the one who provided service to others, she was the true winner! She saw how fun and rewarding it could be to give back to our community. Thanks YMCA and thanks Amador Valley High School. Together you have had a tremendous impact on my daughter!

My daughter did her community service through the Y, too, and she had so much fun! She loved the kids, loved the staff and never once complained about having to "work." She definitely learned a lot about herself but she also learned the value of giving back.

We love the Tri-Valley YMCA and feel very fortunate to have a strong Y in our community.
