Abstract

What was once the essence of survival and united people to demand change has fallen on hard times. Civic engagement in this country is declining drastically because the average American cannot afford to spend time or money being involved. The repercussions of this growing disconnect can be seen in the rise of individualistic thinking that divides and pits neighbor verse neighbor. This project was a first attempt at creating a program to better the community. The knowledge gained from this experience will help other prepare to be successful in their community because it was learned from a first hand account.
