Unit Overview 

Youth explore the concept of community and learn about the assets and organizations in their own community. They take a field trip to a local community business district/downtown and learn about the four sectors: business, government, nonprofit, and family. 

Service Experience 
Based on community needs as well as young people's interests and abilities, the group chooses a service project to carry out. Some community projects may include fixing up a park, helping at the library, helping those in need, building bird houses for the nature center and making banners or posters to teach others about a need.
