For my proposal I am doing a snack drive to raise money to go towards the mental health program that my group will be doing. We will be getting donations from local businesses to go towards the snacks that we will be selling. We will hopefully be doing this soon. This will benefit people who are dealing with mental illnesses.
I chose this project because mental health is completely pushed to the side in our school. No one at all talks about it and it needs to be more talked about. I tried to do a project like this before through my leadership program through Penn College. We then asked our administration if the project would be okay and then again they pushed it to the side and said it was not a good idea. There are teenagers dealing with mental health and they do not know what to do about it.
The outcome of this will be very good. I will gain an awareness of what is going on around me. I will learn more leadership skills and more responsibility. I will learn more about helping other as well.
