These activities help us explore the assets and traits in our community. What makes your community what it is? What are its strengths, needs, and issues people face? Understanding your community and its resources is an important step in building community, the service-learning process, and taking action. 

These resources help young people understand their own identity, what they care about, and who they are in relationship to others. This is an important step in building community and in the service-learning process. 

Communities involve youth of all ages and life experiences as changemakers and leaders with this guide developed in collaboration with representatives from Michigan Foundations.
