When a community is doing well as a whole, its individuals are better off too.

Homeschooling Video Contest, “Homeschool Students Give Back” sponsored by Bridgeway Academy, Highlights Community Service Oriented Home School Families
Community Service has been a driving force in America since our beginning. Yet in today’s world, it is easy to become lost in hectic schedules, looming deadlines, incessant sports activities, tough academics, field trips, and all sorts of other things sweeping people along on a daily ride. Although everyone will likely agree that community service is a valuable and worthwhile pursuit, it is easy to miss this very important aspect of a healthy family with solid core foundations, when they get mired down in the day-to-day task list people are all faced with.
Performing community service provides families with a feeling of belonging to a unit, and pride about such membership. Community service activities are a cornerstone for healthy, happy lifestyles. These critical "service to the community values" need to be passed along to children, providing children and young adults with an identity, purpose, and a strong bond with the community culture that they live in.
Homeschool Values Embrace Community Giving
Most homeschool families embrace the mantra of building
•a strong character
•a moral foundation
•loving bonds at home
People know that a moral foundation includes “performing random acts of kindness” and doing good things for others in the neighborhood.
Serving teaches compassion and empathy for the plight of others, while building a child’s self-esteem and pride in their efforts. Community service is the best way to instill a positive self worth ethic and a sense of responsibility in children and young adults.
