CES - May Blog Prompt

“Once social change begins, it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducated the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. You cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore. We have seen the future and the future is ours.”              - Cesar Chavez

Now that you are on the road of social change, what do you plan to do to help make sure your future continues to be one in which you are civically engaged and an agent for change?

  1. Now that I am on the road of social change, I plan on continuing to grow with my community to make sure that I remain civically engaged and an agent for change. Right now, I am becoming civically engaged by volunteering with Big Brothers Big Sisters. I am helping by showing my Little the way of college life and the ability to be successful. I want her to know that she is able to do anything, once she puts her mind to it. This will have a domino affect from me to her, from her to everyone around her, and so on. I am an agent for change for youth by showing them to remain motivated and believing in one another. There is an advantage of going to college, I want the youth to grasp that.
