The month of September marks our first full month of programming for this academic year. Along with academic support, Reality Changers builds our students to be change agents in the community. This year so far, our students have served a total of 211 hours and 5 different events across the county. Last month, our students helped raise money to end homelessness at Father Joe’s Village, “A Short Walk Home” 5K, and beautified Herbert Hoover High School by painting benches and cleaning debris.
This month, students continued to provide a helping hand by cleaning several pounds of trash at Ocean Beach Dog Beach, feeding 200 homeless children and families at Ladle Fellowship Soup Kitchen, and assisting with the success of our 6th Annual College Fest. Reality Changers superstars are set to keep the service spirit alive by restoring the community in National City and Escondido with Habitat for Humanity ReStore. Students will end the month by helping to end hunger and sorting hundreds of food items with Feeding San Diego.
Reality Changers helps first generation college students become college graduates and regular opportunities to give back teach our students how to become civil servants in their community. Our goal is to complete 7,000 hours of community service to impact the needs in the community such as homelessness, environmental sustainability, housing security, and hunger.
