Prospect Park’s “It’s My Park” Day of Service
October 22, 2011 –
Dare 2 Dream Leaders, Inc. volunteered at Prospect Park’s “It’s My Park” Day of Service. Our group included 12 youth participants from IS 240 Hudde and the East Flatbush community, two parents and D2D’s group of interns. On this day we geared up with rakes, shovels and brooms to clean Prospect Park so the park would be clean for all of the festivities that are taking place this week. The students enjoyed helping their community and hanging with one another outside of school. One of our participants had this to say about the day “I had so much fun helping the earth and feeding the swans”.
D2D encourages our youth to participate in community service activities in hopes to instill in them the importance of giving back to their community. It is very important for our youth to learn how to get involved in their community as well as volunteer and serve at this young age. The students are looking forward to the next community building activity!
