Youth Leader, Nishtha Garg – Meeting Community Needs Through Creating Unity

“I hope at least to make people aware of each other; to create a better sense of unity among the people that I volunteer with, endeavoring to create a sense of community.  This sense of community can apply at any level too:  local, state, or county – or even internationally, and when present, the possibilities of what can be accomplished are endless, no matter what issue you pick to address.  It all starts with the same sense of being aware of the community that you exist in.”

Nishtha Garg attends Stanton College Preparatory High School  She has served on HandsOn Jacksonville’s Youth Leadership Council since 2011.  This year she worked on a Global Youth Service Day project to promote healthy living, organizing a health-conscious food drive to distribute food to community members and helped conduct an event to promote basis aspects of healthy living.

Nishtha also has organized community service projects through the Stanton Medical Society and volunteers at St. Lukes hospital each summer.

She also coordinates, choreographs and teaches various cultural dances for her school’s multicultural show as well as teaching these dances to groups of middle and elementary school students for cultural performances at festivals and other occasions for nonprofit organizations.
