The students will engage in a “Hands On” service project addressing a multiplicity of tasks: Creating and building empathy and compassion for fellow citizens, establishing a community conscience and extending humanity to a segment of our community that is often forgotten or neglected. Students will create, purchase and author Holiday cards and notes that will be delivered to the nursing homes and hospital. The students will also create cards that will be distributed to homebound Veterans with a “Star” enclosed from a flag canton. . Many students do not have the benefit of grandparents and this activity provides a positive network allowing for the students to foster a human connection with elders in our community. The student’s personalized community service experience actions foster within each a “community conscience” that is vital as they mature into proactive citizens within our society. As an extension of their Carepassion the students will help and participate “hands on” in a public educational ceremony in December 2020 honoring Veterans their families and community organizations.

Our project will provide a collection point for neighbors to bring their fall leaves for composting. We have worked with our local schools to establish a collection point and coordinated youth groups to assist seniors in raking their fall leaves. We have arranged for a Master Composter to educate neighbors on the "Whys and Hows of Backyard Composting". Neighbors who compost can take donated leaves to their compost piles and the remaining leaves will be placed in a dumpster for composting at a local facility.

STEM careers are rapidly growing in today's world, but boys are three times more likely to pursue STEM careers than girls. STEM You Can! is a youth-led nonprofit organization that provides free STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) summer camps for elementary and middle school girls (4th-6th grade) to spark their interest in science. We want to show girls that science and engineering fields are not only meant for boys and that they can pursue these careers as well, if they continue showing interest and work towards these goals. Our goal is not to discourage boys from pursuing scientific knowledge, rather to encourage young girls to do so. We hope to show young girls that science is fun and exciting by performing hands-on experiments to explore areas such as engineering, chemistry, astronomy, and biology. The activities we include in the camp promote teamwork and show the girls that science is creative and collaborative. Some of these activities included building towers, making slime, and creating edible terrariums. This program began in New Jersey and is currently running in 14 other states. This program began in Louisville, Kentucky four years ago, and last summer we expanded to Lexington and Prestonsburg, KY as well. The program was a success and the girls really enjoyed it, so this summer, we are excited to announce that we are running another camp in Louisville!
