Service Leadership Projects
Project Reflections from GEOG 1 Fall 2018
Service leadership projects empower students to engage in their community about issues that they care about.
View project examples and what each student learned from sharing their work.
Project: Bay Area Underwater 2001
In order to spread awareness to this issue, I posted my video on Facebook and Instagram, and also sent them in my group chats with my friends. Turns out that this was just as surprising to them as it was to me the first time I heard about it in class.
The more I worked on this project, the more I realized how important it is to share information with members of our community.
Project: California Wildfires & Climate Change
I now feel empowered to take ownership in being a leader and taking action rather than assuming other people to do so.
Project: An Earthquake is Coming to the Bay Area, Are You Ready?
I now feel more responsible to inform people, get myself prepared, and be ready to help others.
Project: The Eye of the Storm
I have been involved in my community for a while now, as I perform in many community theatre productions in the area, but I have never really provided information to them in an educational sense such as a infographic. Through doing this project, I have grown an appreciation for teaching people about potential dangers in the surrounding area.
Project — Flood: The Most Common Natural Disaster in the United States
I learned how to step out of my comfort zone and realize that in order to improve our communities more people need to step up and be involved.
Project: California Fires
Completing and sharing this project … I began to realize fast that if I ever want to speak up for something, I can easily make a PSA or join a movement so that my voice can be heard and others who join can be heard as well.
Project: Climate Change
Completing this project made me realize the power social media actually holds.
Project: Landslides and Mudslides
People should not feel scared to express their concerns, passions, etc. because it can honestly yield such great results. By taking a leadership role in posting the infographic expressed to myself that every one of us can really make a change.
Project: The Effects of the California Wildfires
The project overall was a success because it definitely brought me closer to my community and be able to use what I learned in this class onto the project.
