We would create a Power point presentation, outlining who we are, the work that we do, include some info on Jane Goodall, her life & work. We will then introduce the Roots&Shoots organisation, & give examples of projects already in progress. We will then get the interested individuals to come up with their own projects & we will then guide, assist & monitor their progress. This would be ongoing but probably need 1 year to visit all schools in our town.

Our project would be able to give Logan the freedom he has never been able to have. The service dog would literally always be tethered to Logan, allowing his family to relax a little more when they are out in public. Logan's service dog wouldn't let him run into a busy street or parking lot, or let him wander off with strangers. Logan is also prone to self-harming when he feels overstimulated or anxious, and the service dog would be trained to be lay on his lap, and calm Logan down when that happens. Another huge thing that the service dog would do for Logan would be that it would act as a best friend of sorts. Logan is completely non-verbal, which makes it difficult for him to communicate with peers, but a service dog would always be there, they would be best friends eventually family as Logan grows up. Our biggest fundraiser is going to be a 5k run/walk, Logan can't run at them, but his dad has always taken him to them and ran while he pushed Logan in a stroller like thing. Most of my team, including myself, are high school students, so we are going to do things at our school such as selling different baked things, doing a 5 minutes to win it, and different things to help us raise more money for Logan.

Each grade in our school is adopting a group of Community Helpers. Each grade will design and create a game made from recycled materials based on the Community Helper's profession. The students will facilitate these games at our annual Day of Play on October 15. Each group of community helpers (police, sheriff, EMT, etc) will be invited to be honored at a Day of Play that the public is invited to. Each group will be honored and will play the games with the students, thereby building a positive and playful experience together.
