Community Connections: Meet Ethan H.
The object that connect me to my neighborhood would be the gate from our private community. Yes, it would have to be the gate itself. The gate has forced me to interact with my neighbors, who live all around me. As a child, whenever I would play outside with my brothers our fun would cause a commotion -- forcing all of the kids from within our community want to go outside to play and have fun. Eventually I became friends with all of the neighbor near my age. The gate allowed us to form our own safe and private community.
What object connects you to your community? We asked the Youth Voices students at Mountain View High School this question at the end of our first meeting and requested they bring that object to our next class meeting. The items they brought and their explanations offer physical evidence of the personal link the students have with their neighborhood and identifies their departure point for this project: their experience, memories and personal understanding of their community.
