Most people in this world belong in a community, it is a main part of life. Being in a community helps the people inside that community a chance to be themselves. A community can be any kind of group or community that people join. Like, sport groups, community service groups, after school activities, and even social medias.
ROLES IN COMMUNITIES: In a community, there are roles that each person in the group has to have. Here are some of those roles:
- Leader – listens to the people in the group, and make sure they stay on task
- Initiator – person who helps come up with the ideas
- Elaborate – the person/people that elaborates on the ideas and find extra information to help with that idea
- “Engineer” – the person/people that makes the product or action happen
- “Recorder” – person that records all that is happening in that group/community
These are the main roles in a group but of cause there are the other people, the members that join and make all of it happen.
HOW TO DECIDE WHAT COMMUNITIES TO JOIN: It is not very difficult to find a community to join. What you have to do first if find something you are interested in. After you have found a passion or hobby, try to find a group that focuses on that idea. Then check out that group and if you see that you are starting to like it, then you have found your community.
WHAT COMMUNITIES AM I PART OF OR WOULD LIKE TO BE PART OF: I would like to join more community service group that will help out countries community. I was thinking of maybe helping out in an orphanage every week. In school, I have already joined the Big Brother Big Sister after after school activity. This makes me be part of a community because we get to help and lead children to try and become better in school, this will help them get a better academic future. In future years I would like to join more sport communities, like volleyball or basketball. This will not only help me get better at sports, but also I will meet new people and make new friends.
THIS IS WHAT I THINK A COMMUNITY IS ALL ABOUT
