    For some college students, community service will be a prerequisite for graduation. Others might enjoy volunteering. Regardless of the reason for their participation, community service opportunities for college students might include:

    Campus Initiatives

    Typically, numerous campus-based volunteer opportunities will be available. Common in-house activities can include anti-bullying campaigns and mental health counseling for students dealing with emotional, personal, or academic struggles.

    Helping The Homeless Or Poor

    Unfortunately, regardless of where a student attends college, there is a good chance that the city or town has homeless or impoverished people in need of assistance. Community organizations charged with helping struggling populations can typically benefit from eager and enthusiastic young people seeking to help their fellow man.

    Working With The Elderly

    Facilities housing persons of advanced age can usually be found in most communities. Working with elderly people can be quite rewarding for young people. Older individuals appreciate the time youthful persons take to spend with them. In turn, sage subjects can impart a great deal of wisdom that can benefit college students as they progress in their lives and careers.

    Becoming Involved With Various Houses Of Worship

    Houses of worship encompassing many religious denominations will often be found in a college student’s new community. Churches, synagogues, and mosques often oversee or sponsor a plethora of charitable endeavors and are always looking for eager volunteers to help perform various essential tasks.

    Organizing Environmental Improvement Projects

    Regardless of where people relocate, the environment always plays a vital part in their life. Dirty, damaged or tainted lands not only renders impacted locations aesthetically unpleasing but could ultimately threaten the health and safety of those who reside there. Therefore, many college students choose to participate in environmental improvement projects. One such simple effort is to gather a group of people to clean a public area such as a park.

    Helping Young People

    Many communities have a certain percentage of at-risk youths who could benefit from a college student’s influence. Some university students opt to join mentoring programs in which they spend a bit of time each week (or whenever the schedules of mentor and mentee permits) with youth in need. They provide advice, answer any questions they may have, and serve as their advocate.

  • Život šesnaestogodišnjakinje po ceni od 3.800 $ 

    Autor: Ana Krstajić, Unitas

    Ima li život jedne šesnaestogodišnjakinje cenu? Koliko vredi njen talenat, snaga ili osmeh? Odgovor je 3.800 američkih dolara. 

    Priča o šesnaestogodišnjoj Fatou iz Gvineje govori o prodaji života na tržištu – poput robe. Dok njeni vršnjaci idu u školu i druže se, njena slika sa naznačenom cenom i haštagom maids for transfer nalazi se na instagram profilu trgovaca ljudima. Ona je izolovana, njena osnovna prava su ugrožena, radi pod prinudom i nalazi se među nasilnim neznancima koji joj prete. Uskoro će postati vlasništvo nekog drugog – neke bogate porodice u Kuvajtu gde će raditi fizičke poslove do kraja svog života. 

    Fatou je samo jedna od hiljade žena i devojaka, čija se slika sa procenom vrednosti njihovih tela nedavno našla na Instagramu, uz poziv na pregovore o kupovini. Trgovina ljudima kojom se direktno narušava Univerzalna deklaracija o ljudskim pravima  pronađena je i na drugim aplikacijama koje nude Google play i Apple App Store.  

    Da li ste nekada zamišljali da, dok na Instagramu tražite farmerke koje želite da kupite, prilikom pretrage možete da naiđete na fotografiju žene koja je na prodaju? Kao što brendovi svoju garderobu plasiraju na društvenim mrežama, uz komuniciranu cenu i primamljiv poziv za kupovinu, trgovci robljem na isti način tretirali su zarobljene žene. Svaku su fotografisali, procenili koliko vredi njen život i svrstali u kategorije prema rasi, visini, težini i ličnim osobinama. Jedan od oglasa izgledao je ovako: Afrikanka, čista, uredna i nasmejana.  

    Topla, udobna, lepa – cipela.  Čista, uredna, nasmejana – žena. Za trgovce ljudima, ne postoji razlika. Za njih, ove žene su najobičnija roba koja je u njihovom vlasništvu i čeka svog kupca. Samo od njih zavisi da li će te žene danas dobiti čašu vode, ili komad hleba, da li će kroz prozor ugledati malo svetlosti i ono najvažnije - ko će biti njihov sledeći vlasnik.  

    Ali, priča o Fatou iz Gvineje dobila je srećan epilog zahvaljujući novinarima BBC-a koji su nedavno u Kuvajtu razotkrili lanac trgovine ljudima. Oni su sproveli tajnu istragu, predstavljajući se kao bogati bračni par u potrazi za devojkom koju žele da kupe kako bi im bila služavka. Stupili su u kontakt sa 57 trgovaca ljudima putem aplikacije 4Sale, koja je dozvolila pretragu žena prema rasi i drugim kategorijama. Jedan od trgovaca rekao im je da je „Fatou uvek nasmejana, čak iako je uposliš da radi do pet ujutru.”

    Kuvajtske vlasti spasile su Fatou i vratile je kući u Gvineju, gde ju je lokalna porodica usvojila. O svom iskustvu u Kuvajtu rekla je sledeće: „Konstantno su vikali na mene i nazivali me životinjom. To me je jako bolelo i stalno sam bila tužna – ali ništa nisam mogla da preduzmem povodom toga.” 

    Fatou se u Gvineji vratila školovanju i ima priliku da izgradi novi život, slobodan život. „Srećna sam. Čak i sada, dok pričam o tom periodu. Osećam se kao da sam se vratila iz ropstva” – rekla je ona.

    Upotreba društvenih mreža i aplikacija ima svoju mračnu stranu - često govorimo o opasnostima kao što su vrbovanje maloletnika i prodaja droge. Međutim, stvaranje online tržišta robova najnoviji je oblik grubog kršenja ljudskih prava koji se na njima razvio. Instagram je reagovao uklonivši haštag maids for transfer i 703 naloga odgovorna za nezakonite aktivnosti. Kompanije Google i Apple izjavile su da sa programerima koji razvijaju aplikacije rade na tome da se ova ilegalna aktivnost više ne pojavi. Ipak, ostaje pitanje kako će ove kompanije sprečiti dalji razvoj tržišta trgovine ljudima na njihovim platformama, budući da svaki dan nastaje mnoštvo novih naloga, aplikacija i haštagova. 

    Prinudni rad jedan je od najzastupljenijih oblika trgovine ljudima. Žrtve su najčešće osobe koje u potrazi za poslom odlaze u strane zemlje. U potrazi za boljim životom Srbiju godišnje napušta oko 35.000 ljudi. Međutim, postoje određene kategorije radnika koje su znatno ranjivije od drugih i to ih čini potencijalnim žrtvama, kao što su žene koje dolaze iz siromašnih krajeva i već su u prošlosti bile zlostavljane ili marginalizovane. Izrabljivači zloupotrebljavaju položaj žrtava i pretnjama, ucenama i nasiljem primoravaju ih na rad. Osobe izložene prisilnom radu najčešće su zaposlene kao pomoć u kući, u poljoprivredi ili u fabrikama. Međunarodna organizacija rada objavila je zastrašujuć podatak – da na globalnom nivou 24,9 miliona ljudi radi pod prisilom. 

    Postoji više indikatora koji upućuju na to da je neka osoba prinuđena na rad: 

    •    Zabrana kretanja

    •    Izolacija

    •    Fizičko i seksualno nasilje

    •    Zastrašivanje i pretnje

    •    Oduzimanje ličnih dokumenata

    •    Zadržavanje zarade

    •    Dužnički rad 

    •    Loši radni i životni uslovi

    •    Preteran prekovremeni rad

    •    Zloupotreba ranjivosti osobe koja radi

    •    Obmanjivanje osobe koja radi

    Ohrabrujemo vas da se obratite za pomoć ukoliko ove indikatore prepoznajete u svom okruženju.

  • Diciembre es el mes que te hace recordar todo lo que hiciste en el año, el mes en el que te motivas con planes a futuro, en el que aprendes de tus errores, es un mes que te pone triste y melancólico pero es solo una fecha, un número en el calendario, no es el final ni el principio, es solo un mes.

    TE ACUERDAS…?

    Tan tan…¿quien es?…la vieja Ines…¿qué queria?… ¡un listón!… ¿de que color?.. ¡rosa!.. rosa si hay…a correr!!…


    ¿Te acuerdas de aquel tiempo cuando las decisiones importantes se tomaban mediante un práctico…?

    ‘De Tin Marin de Do Pingüe… Cucara Macara, Titere fue, yo no fui fue Tete Pégale, Pégale…!’

    De cuando se podían detener las cosas cuando se complicaban con un simple… 'No se vale’ o 'Zafo…!

    De cuando Los errores se arreglaban diciendo simplemente…

    ’…Empezamos otra vez?’

    De cuando El peor castigo y condena era que te hicieran escribir 100 veces… 'No debo…’

    De cuando, para salvar a todos los amigos… Bastaba con un grito de…

    'Un, Dos, Tres por mi y por todos mis compañeros…!

    De cuando descubrías tus más ocultas habilidades, a causa de un… '¡A que no puedes hacer esto!’

    De cuando no había nada más prohibido que jugar con fuego…

    SOBRE TODO EN DICIEMBRE

    De cuando lo único que nos hacía correr como locos era..

    'El Ultimo que llegue es…!’

    De cuando 'Policias y Ladrones’ era solo un juego para el recreo,

    y por supuesto era mucho más divertido ser Ladrón…

    De cuando la más moderna, poderosa y eficiente arma que jamás se había inventado era… “La Bomba del Globo con Agua”

    De cuando aquella Moneda bajo la Almohada que nos dejaba el Ratón de Los Dientes, era como un Tesoro para comprar todo tipo de Dulces…

    De cuando 'GUERRA!!!’ No significaba mas que bolas de papel durante las horas libres en clase…

    De cuando los Alimentos Basicos y Escenciales eran tan solo Leche con Galletas y los Dulces a diario…

    De cuando quitarle las ruedas pequeñas a la bici significaba un gran paso en tu vida ….

    De cuando el Negocio del Siglo era Cambiar esas Estampas del álbum.

    _Has Soñado por todos…_

    De cuando todos te admiraban si lograbas cruzar la cuerda mientras saltabas y en reversa también.


    De cuando cualquier trozo de Yeso o Tabique era como un Tesoro para poder formar un Circulo en el Piso y Jugar al 'Stop’… (declaro la guerra en contra de mi peor enemigo que es?… y luego veias a quien tuviera el pie mas lejos de la raya…

    De cuando todas esas cosas tan simples… nos hacían felices, simplemente… No necesitábamos nada más….

    De cuando Un balón, Una cuerda y Dos amigos eran Suficientes para pasarla bien todo el acalorado dia del verano..

    SI PUEDES RECORDAR LA MAYORÍA DE ESTAS COSAS Y HE CONSEGUIDO QUE SONRIAS, ENTONCES SIGNIFICA QUE HAS TENIDO UNA INFANCIA FELIZ… Y QUE TODAVÍA TE QUEDA DENTRO ALGO DEL NIÑO QUE ERAMOS NO HACE TANTO TIEMPO…

    NUNCA PIERDAS AL NIÑO QUE LLEVAMOS DENTRO PORQUE DA SENTIDO A NUESTRA VIDA!.

    Tiempos, que no volveran, pero que llevamos en el recuerdo.

  • Educating the public on what policies actually entail and what would happen if an act was voted for or against is an important part of political environments. Some of the nonprofits that perform the political education roles discussed in class include lobbying and advocacy groups and public charities. Another type that we are familiar with are think tanks. The Heartland Institute is one organization that tackles many different social issues and concerns has one think tank regarding vaping titled “In the Tank- Dive Deep on Vaping.” This think tank discussed the regulations being proposed, how they impact the industry, and while the positive outcomes are obvious, they discuss the possible negative effects. This think tank is doing exactly what political education groups do which is informing the public on the different aspects, important figures in the policy, and who is affected by the various possible outcomes.

  • Vora mitjanit.

    No me corto: escribo algo. 23.57; tres minutos para las doce de la madrugada. 23.58; dos. Descolocados frente a un presente al que tratamos de adaptarnos con un éxito parcial. He tomado esos 40 de clotiapina y 25 de agomelatina y mi psique no es capaz de conciliar un cierto sueño. A pesar de que trata de incidir en ello. La opción de comprar anfetamina cobra más relevancia que nunca, pero hacerlo no nos sale a cuenta. Bajo intoxicación clotiapínica… pero sin ánimos de sucumbir al sueño… hemos terminado aquí, al parecer. No es culpa nuestra. Mañana estaremos listos para ir a clase. Si mi abuela la viera abominaría de ella. No tiene vergüenza… no nos rendiremos tan fácilmente. Sueño y su difícil acontecer.

  • The more I learn about politics, the more my political affiliation is simply, “non profit.” While the politicians scream at each other about how stupid and wrong the other side is with millions and millions of dollars, nonprofits are people doing thing about causes they believe in with none monies.

    Please note, I know some nonprofits are garbage, but they are run by humans, and we’re largely garbage (the bad kind), but so many of them are actually doing something about things they care about while everyone else just says, “that won’t work, because….”

  • Nonprofits can engage in political activities but there are differences between public charity and lobbying and interest groups, and since there are not any public charity groups either for or against vaping, we do not see the other side. The only side we see is the lobbying and advocacy aspects. The American Vaping Association (AVA) is a 501©(4) and can be considered a social welfare organization. Because it can be considered an interest group, it is allowed to engage in political activities and support candidates by donating and endorsing them. Lately, AVA has been protesting Trump and his Administration since they are trying to restrict access to vaping devices. While being Democratic is not their official political affiliation, due to the current reforms, they are advocating in an anti-Trump manner at this moment.

  • Social capital is typically a great way to build connections, meet new people, and find other benefits. Nonprofits bring people together and build connections that generate a powerful combo of resources that make society a better place. However, some social capital have negative sides. Some groups are exclusionary, meaning they only allow certain people to be members. A not as an extreme example would be organizations that have zero tolerance rules that remove members from the group if they express conflicting ideas. Some groups promote values that seem inconsistent with the majority’s views. Some pro-vaping organizations like Citizens for Tobacco Rights believe that all of the work being done to reduce tobacco and nicotine product usage is unacceptable from the government. While a majority of people, even some pro-vaping groups, agree that some regulations on tobacco will be ok, these people are against it and this leads to unnecessary arguments, hatred, and intolerance.

  • I had a dream and I believed it was what I was made to do. I felt so certain about “what I wanted to do with my life” by senior year of high school. I spent the next few years hoping without any courage to take steps towards it. Ironically, it was the mental space I was in that helped me formulate that dream that kept me from ever realizing it. By senior year of college, I felt I had overcome, finally overcome. But then when I got home, I felt everything rush back. I felt trapped inside my head only wanting to escape and finally start working towards something I had been dreaming of for so long. After over a year, when I finally broke free, I was slingshotted right back. I couldn’t understand how my one act of extreme bravery could have failed so miserably. I should have been more assertive. I should have put my foot down. I shouldn’t have let all that happen, but it did. That first dream, for what felt like the first time, started sizzling out. In it’s place, new dreams emerged. They just kept piling up, big and small. That old dream never died off, but it was overshadowed by something new. And a couple years later when I’m finally thinking I might actually take another leap of faith real soon, I randomly stumble upon a nonprofit that combines a lot of all these newer dreams of mine. It just so happens that they have locations in the places I have been already seriously considering heading if I were to actually leave. And if that weren’t crazy enough, their YouTube channel has 2.22K subscribers. I used to feel like 22 was such a significant and important number and haven’t really cared much lately…It just so happens to pop up when I least expect it.
