The 1st week of September this year marks what is, perhaps one of the most important weeks on the JCI International Calender, Active Citizenship Week.
Here is a few ways to be an active citizen:
- Deliver meals to homebound individuals.
- Mentor a young person.
- Start a book club in your area.
- Shop at a local, family owned business.
- Help an elderly person by delivering shopping.
- Volunteer at a local St. John Ambulance or Order of Malta.
- Donate some of your time to help a local organisation.
- Donate unwanted clothing/toys to a local charity shop.
- Clean up rubbish along a river, beach or park.
These are just some ideas we give to members to help them become better young active citizens.
