Early Saturday morning, members of the West Valley Mayor’s Youth Council and the Interact Club gathered at Main Street Canoga Park Farmer’s Market to help Mayor Eric Garcetti promote a new app “MyLA311.”
“This event is important because we got to be involved in our community and make a change,” said junior Jade Ajileye, president of the Interact Club.
After the volunteers signed in and photos were taken, Garcetti presented a speech that emphasized the importance of the app “MyLA311.” This app allows anyone to enhance their community by giving them the ability to notify the city automatically of any issue or request a city service like sanitation or graffiti removal. The volunteers had the job of spreading awareness for this beneficial app.
“Whether you’re a volunteer, whether you’re a member of the neighborhood council, we all have a responsibility to each other, and on this windy day it is even more rewarding to empower every Angeleno to know how she or he can serve their community,” Garcetti said. “It is as easy as 3-1-1.”
Following the speeches, volunteers went through a quick training session where they learned basic rules like “Do not enter the houses” and “Act courteous towards everyone.” Afterwards, volunteers split up into groups of five and were off to their designated areas to promote the app.
When members finished their walk, they were rewarded with free lunch tickets at the farmers market. Although this event only lasted a few hours, the volunteers used teamwork to impact their community in a positive way.
