Our community has a lack of services and resources for teens. In particular, there are no spaces available for teens to go after school. As a result, teens engage in at-risk behavior such as gang affiliation, substance abuse, and vandalism. It has left the community looking unsanitary, unsafe, and unwanted. To address the problem, we would like to participate in efforts to create a space at our school open to the community. With the grant we would like to help provide resources for the center. This would include furniture, school supplies, and resources for high school students to be able to use when they visit the center. Our school is small with a limited budget and while there are some resources available to make the center happen, we know that without community involvement, centers such as this will not succeed. With any remaining money we would like to help replenish our school’s community garden. The garden has helped create a communal feeling among our classmates because it is a group effort to create and maintain. Both the garden and the center are things that we believe are important to bringing change to our community because if we (teenagers) take pride in our communities it will get better because many of the problems we have identified involve teenagers and a lack of resources and opportunities. As a result, we would have a space welcoming to all students wanting to use it. More students would be improving in their school work and the number of students graduating would increase. Also, there would be less behavior issues during the school day. We believe all of this will happen because if students feel welcomed and a part of a community they are more likely to show respect for others and the area around them. It would also help our community beyond the Center because each of the students taking advantage of the Center will share with and influence other people around them who are not using the center. Change happens when someone takes action. By beginning to create space such as these, other spaces will eventually emerge at other locations but someone has to take the first step and we have decided that each of us wants to be that person.

We have lined up a series of speakers to address the children of our community. Speakers include public service figures from various areas such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), various Embassy officials, physicians, NASA, and other organizations. The lectures will be targeted to elementary age children. The children are encouraged to ask questions and provide suggestions for how to improve our world. We plan to record the talks and publish the transcript for all to share.

After developing a community map and brainstorming our own wonderings students called upon a community focus. They are seeking community leaders to support their first focus .Launching our studies with a recognition of International Peace Day we created poems and illustrations and our first cause this year is to support humane treatment of animals close to our community. We will write letters to the city mayor and petition community leaders to examine the treatment of the animals at the Central Park Carriage. Last year our petitions were recognized by President Obama. Through small changes and actions we can make a difference.We recently completed investigations of endangered animals and published petitions which we shated school wide.

We created a club, this is the starting point for this project. We've divided wellness into 7 (8, if still receiving an education) areas and each club meeting indulge ourselves in a new area. This is meant to be a voluntary exploration, this way students receive the most out of the experience. We also promote outside events that we believe can really benefit our members. Our goal is to get a solid foundation and one day turn it into a curriculum that schools around LAUSD will adopt, and hope to make it grow from there.
