CSF is a club that helps promote community service so students have an opportunity to give back to the world and help others. Although they do a lot of community service it also helps students earn scholarships.
Senior Annie Speckhahn, 17, said, “It looks good on a college application and its great way to earn community service.”
CSF stands for California Scholarship Federation and there mission is to promote community service. Right now they have two on going partnerships with North Broadway Elementary school and Las Villa del Norte. They also have a new partnership with the Escondido Humane Society.
The first partnership that they have is with North Broadway Elementary School its were CSF members go down to North Broadway Elementary School and the students will do something called Listen, Learn, Laugh, Literacy with North Broadway students. They’ll also be helping the students out with their reading, writing, mathematics, and also studying their words.
Sophomore Perla Duran, 16, said, “My experience as a tutor at North Broadway has been an amazing experience for me. This has also helped me grow as a student because not only am I getting a chance to help others with their academics and school work, but I also get to learn new things as well.”
The other partnership was one that they have with Las Villa del Norte its where CSF members go to Las Villa Del Norte retirement center and CSF members will do a program called Adopt a Grandparent and they’ll be assigned a grandparent and spend quality time with them. They can also do activities and games with them.
The last partnership that they have is a new one which is with the Escondido Humane Society. Its where CSF members go down to the Escondido Humane Society and help walk pets, take them baths, and spend time with them. CSF is also collecting blankets, sheets, and towels to give and donate to the animals there.
CSF is an academic honor and tradition. It’s also a plus on transcripts and college applications.
