To help others become involved their needs to be more advertisement, like a social media site that show the local event that are going on. On this site people could also put up events they are planning or trying to plan and people can volunteer to help. Teachers play a much greater role than just teaching academics to students, parents and communities. Teacher know how important the interact meant is between these three roles in society.
