Why I Serve: To Make an Impact on My Community

December 2, 2011

Why do I serve?

I serve because I wish to make an impact in the community and become a part of change.

I serve not just City Year, but City Year Baton Rouge because I want to change the city where I am from.  Serving others has always been a passion of mine and City Year has become the positive outlet to express that desire.

I serve because of Paul*, an amazing little 6th grader, who attended the same elementary school that I did 12 years ago.  I see in him the potential to be a great student. And I will never give up on him.

City Year not only changes the lives of the students we work with, but changes our lives as well.

My name is Sara Ross and I pledge to serve Baton Rouge.

*Name changed to respect student’s privacy.
