Breathe California-Service Opportunity

Thumbs Up Thumbs Down, a project of Breathe California of Sacramento

Be part of a university level tobacco research project

Watch and review movies!

Sacramento-area students between the ages of 14 and 22 review at least 1 currently playing top-grossing movie per month for tobacco and at least 1 DVD per month for tobacco. They attend 1 meeting per month at the Breathe California office downtown (909 12th Street) where they discuss their findings for the movies they reviewed the past month, sign up to review the next month’s movies, and learn more about tobacco in movies. TUTD reviews movies for tobacco because tobacco imagery has a strong influence on encouraging youth to start smoking. TUTD compiles the data on tobacco in movies the students collect into a huge database that can be viewed at scenesmoking.org. This data is used by universities like UCSF, the CDC, and even the Surgeon General to help raise awareness about the issue of tobacco in movies in hopes of pressuring the movie industry to eliminate tobacco imagery from movies once and for all.

By joining this program, students earn community service hours, learn about the issue of tobacco in movies, learn how to identify and quantify tobacco in movies, help their communities by raising awareness about this issue, and get to watch movies for free. It’s a super fun, easy, and rewarding way for students to earn community service hours and just generally benefit their communities.

Tutors and Mentors Needed!

The E.Claire Raley Transitional Housing Program administered by the Salvation Army, has been up and running since 2009, targeting homeless families in the Sacramento County. Our program focuses on promoting the achievement of participant’s self-sufficiency, supporting and reinforcing positive independent living skills and facilitating a smooth transition to permanent housing. We will be launching our next big project on site sometime this month and are need of tutors and mentors to volunteer in our “Saving Our Families” project. We would like to open this opportunity to Mira Loma High School students who have required volunteering hours or who just want to be a helping hand in the community. 

Your responsibilities would include working with youth between the ages of 6 – 14 in areas that they are struggling with in school. You will be responsible for helping to build self-esteem and character. These duties include helping to raise a child’s G.P.A., as well as assisting the parent and teacher with keeping the student on track for academic success.

Our location is only minutes away from Mira Loma High School and you are always welcome to tour; our address is 3845 Annadale Lane, Sacramento 95821.

Be a part of history at the Sacramento School House. Volunteers Needed!

The Old Sacramento Schoolhouse Museum is located in the Historic Old Sacramento area and is a replica of an 1800s school.  Children come on field trips for old-fashioned lessons.  The Schoolhouse is open almost every day – closed on a few major holidays – and depends on volunteers to staff if.  For about 25 years we have sponsored a junior docent program for students to earn community service credits.  These students usually come in on scheduled weekends and also help during special events.  Parking is provided in the Tower Bridge Garage just across the street from the Schoolhouse which is at Front and L Streets. 

Right now we are looking for helpers with the annual Trick-or-Treat event on Saturday afternoon to help small merchants give candy to children on the sidewalk.  Some of the shops are not big enough to handle lots of children milling around, but they still want to participate in the event. 

Other weekends duties would be just greeting visitors and helping them select souvenirs.  If you are a big fan of Halloween – the fun side, not the scary – we would welcome help on Saturday, Oct. 29, between 11:30 and 4 p.m.

If interested, please contact:

You will learn a new skill: How to make someone’s life better. Plus your hours will count towards your Senior Project or required Community Services Hours.

Call me at 707-508-8062 to sign up.

Sincerely, Giovanna Valencia
