Writing Challenge Day 111: Youth Service Projects

Just joined us? Jump in where you are. Don't feel you have to catch up, or to go back and start at the beginning. Just work on today's assignment. For more information about the challenge, read this post.


In your youth or young adulthood, did you do some kind of substantial community service, such as an Eagle project, a humanitarian trip, or religious or service mission? What did you learn from the experience? If it was lengthy, you may want to jot down several memorable incidents to expand upon later.
