As a member of the Alaska Leadership Initiative group at the University of Alaska Southeast, we spent the second half of the year planning a day of service event for the community. We invited non-profit organizations to plan a service activity and we recruited volunteers to complete the projects. I helped the biology department at UAS with a beach clean up around the building. We found crazy things like old telephones and a smashed bucket. All of it was picked up and brought to proper disposal. We had lots of fun picking up trash! You can't say that every day!
