The 100-Hour Challenge


Civic engagement means working to make a difference in the civic life of our communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference. It means promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political processes. (Ehrlich, 2000,

“You can study government and politics in school, but the best way to really understand the process is to volunteer your time” (Rob McKenna). “Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in” (Author Unknown).
“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” ~Elizabeth Andrew.
