If you've already read the "Circle of Influence" Mission: COMMUNITY blog post then here are some ideas for completing COMMUNITY missions. You can find printable calendars and other resources to help you organize your missions here.
- Help someone in your school/church community by:
- Asking your teacher if you can help pass out papers, clean something in the classroom, or do something helpful in class
- Asking the principal/church leader if there is a project that you and your group of Junior Agents can do to help improve your campus, class, or outdoor area (this could be a clean-up day, a donation drive, or a project needed on campus)
- Setting an example in the classroom of how to act, be respectful, be a leader
- Taking extra care in the work you do. Show your teacher (even if your teacher is your parent) that you take pride in your work
- Writing a thank you note to your teacher
- Writing a note of appreciation to a staff member (Does the Janitor do a great job of keeping the campus clean? Why not thank him/her for that and tell them why you are grateful. Does the librarian have books you love? Tell him/her about a favorite book you read and why you are thankful they work hard to keep the library up and running. Is your parent/caregiver your teacher? Tell them you appreciate all the time they take to invest in your learning.)
- Making a card for a classmate/friend and tell them why you're glad they're your friend
- Drawing a picture for someone and give it to them
- Helping a classmate/friend with their homework after school or during a break
- Helping a sibling with their homework after school or during a break.
- Offering to take care of the class pet (be sure to ask your Senior Agent first for approval)
- Bringing flowers, a favorite treat, or something special for a teacher or staff member (As you've been making observations have you noticed something they like?)
- Help others in your community by:
- Asking a coach or group leader if there is a way you can help
- Helping clean-up after a practice or meeting or arriving early to help set-up
- Setting a good example for your teammates/peers by being a good listener, demonstrating respect, obeying the first time
- Being willing to loan or give needed equipment, tools, materials that might be needed by someone else (be sure to get permission from your Senior Agent first)
- Bringing a letter, card, or drawing to your coach or group leader showing thanks for what they do
- Bringing a special treat for a leader/coach or teammate/friend in your group
- Loaning a group member or teammate something of yours that would be helpful to them (a baseball glove, your favorite book, a stuffed animal that makes you happy, a piece of clothing of yours that they like, etc. Make sure to get approval from your Senior Agent first.)
- Asking your Senior Agent if you can help give a teammate/group member a ride home (maybe you've noticed that they have to walk or ride a bike to/from the meeting/practice)
- Encourage your teammates or group members. Cheer them on! Get into the habit of looking for the good things that people do and point them out in an encouraging way.
- "Wow! That was a great hit!," "You are REALLY good with that instrument. You must practice a lot!," "Way to go _______! Don't give up! You're almost there!"
- Ask if there is a special project you/a group of Junior Agents can help with for your team/group.
If you have questions about this, feel free to email Director C.C. Bloom at: firstname.lastname@example.org or talk to your Senior Agent about it.
I'm proud of you! Keep up the good work Junior Agent! You are amazing!
