Community Service and Involvement to Promote Preparedness

Hi friends,

It doesn’t matter how old you are to make a difference in your community. Today, I am going to share some different opportunities that focus on community engagement. When we work together to promote a safe environment, we can be better prepared for what is to come!

Here are some examples of organizations kids can get involved with to engage in their community and share the message of preparedness!

NYC Department of Youth & Community Development
Youth Preparedness Council
New York City Police Department Cadets
Girl Scouts
Boys Scouts of America

I have a lot of friends who are members of the New York City Emergency Response Teams (CERT) . They work effortlessly to assist in preparing their community for emergencies and volunteer at different events.

What is one way YOU are involved with your community?

Peace and volunteering,

Ready Girl
