We Are Doing Community Service Wrong | Divya Arora | TEDxYouth@PalmHarbor

  • Published on Jan 14, 2020
  • Because of flaws in incentive alignment surrounding school-based community service, some students complete community service as a requirement and simply take part in a project to mark it off a checklist or receive a scholarship. Divya Arora shares a new stance on community service and innovative methods for more engaging community service. These methods help students find a community service project that they are passionate about and create positive change in her community. Divya is a student at Palm Harbor University High School and she is very passionate about engaging herself in both learning and the community. Divya enjoys collaborating with others and learning from individuals with different perspectives on a variety of topics. Divya started a nonprofit organization called Touch The Words and the team raises money and sends books to children in underdeveloped countries. Locally, Divya started a middle school public speaking program called Fight The Fright in order to encourage students to develop their own confident voice. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at www.ted.com/tedx
