A Children’s Community offers viewers an inside glance into the lives of children who
dedicate their time and talents to make a difference in their community.
Despite what most may assume, children are actively involved in your community on a daily basis. A Children’s Community hows viewers how the younger generation is making a difference by volunteering with several nonprofit organizations within Alachua County. The featured kids regularly volunteer with the following organizations: Girls to Young Ladies, JIVE, Ronald McDonald House, Star Center, and March of Dimes-Chain Reaction.
The organization, Girls To Young Ladies, encourages girls of all ages to build lasting relationships through peer-to-peer tutoring, spiritual and academic development, and community service projects. The JIVE Teen Leader Program helps youth develop leadership and interpersonal skills by getting involved in their local thrift shop to help benefit Children’s Home Society of Florida. The volunteers of Ronald McDonald House of North Central Florida give back to families with critically ill children through group volunteer opportunities including maintenance work and cooking. The kids of Star Center benefit the community by expressing themselves through numerous plays, musicals, and talent shows. The children are encouraged to work together to produce and perform a successful creative piece. Finally, Chain Reaction members educate their community by spreading awareness about prematurity causes and prevention methods.
Many participate in fundraising and community events to raise awareness about prematurity by promoting “healthy behaviors and lifestyle choices.” These kids show their dedication to bettering their community by expressing themselves through various forms of art, spreading awareness about important causes, and helping those less fortunate. A Children’s Community is truly an inspirational documentary that portrays the willingness of children to step up and be the change.
