How have you been involved in your community?
Re Joyce at Alli

There are many ways that people choose to get involved in their communities. This 6 minute video features a panel discussion during a statewide Adult Learner Leadership Institute and additional interviews with extraordinary "ordinary" people. It starts with local innovator ReJoyce Ross explaining how she single-handedly started an after school program. Across all of the great examples, these grassroots leaders share how they get as much or more out of what they are doing as they give.

What has been your experience getting involved in your community? What you learned? Where there parts that were challenging? What kept you motivated? We are gathering stories and want to share yours!
