    The purpose of this Program Area is to  Shape the World Around You.

    Wherever we live, whether New York or British Columbia, we all have our own
    perceptions of “community.” Usually, these perceptions are formed by the concrete
    reality of the world
    immediately around us. It may be a bustling metropolis, a town, a tiny village, a large
    county, a broad rural area. It is the place we call home — with all its good and bad
    features, its beauty and ugliness, its strengths and weaknesses. Every individual has
    a voice in shaping the world around him, and every individual can make that voice
    heard. Make your voice heard in your community. Do more than throw up your hands
    in despair over what’s wrong with the world. Your community offers limitless
    opportunity for action that can be seen, felt and judged for its true worth. Look for
    something that’s needed and workable in your community — fight poverty, aid
    individuals with mental retardation, plant a tree, sponsor a blood pressure screening,
    support law enforcement, campaign for every baby’s right to life, help the aged —
    whatever your community’s needs, your members’ interests and your council’s
    resources allow. No matter what you choose . . . get involved!
