If I could earn a living doing what I love the most, it would be helping inner-city and underprivileged children realize their fullest potential while leading healthier and more productive lives. I would do this by bringing recreational centers back to communities to provide focus and direction while offering physical activities to encourage teamwork combat childhood obesity. Recreation centers were once the cornerstones of many communities and gave children the ability to exercise, play sports, engage their minds with activities and games, and a support system if they weren’t receiving it at home. These centers kept children from engaging in unproductive activities and directed them toward achieving their goals.
I will obtain my degree and begin volunteering and working for a non-profit organization that does similar work with children. The centers will work with specific age groups, while assisting them with the transition from elementary to middle school, middle to high school and then into college. We will also monitor and track their progress throughout school. We will seek to employ former educators and business professionals and have them possibly volunteer in the centers. The addition of recreation centers in the community will change the lives of many individuals who are being lost the penal system and cemeteries. It will also begin to increase the value in many communities while stimulating the minds of young people who could change the world.
