Social Problem of the Industrial Age:
How was the social problem addressed during the Industrial Age (social movement)?
New tenements were built, although it didn't make much of a difference. They were unsafe and extremely small. Waterworks was also provided, but many of the tenements didn't have indoor plumbing
Was the social problem addressed properly, and were the efforts successful?
The problem was addressed, but not properly, and the efforts were definitely unsuccessful. The tenements were extremely cramped, most of them didn't have plumbing, which resulted in waste being dumped out windows and onto the street. Making the living conditions down below just as harmful.
Is this social problem still an issue to this day? How so?
Tenements are not a problem in today's society because laws were passed to regulate the security of buildings in larger cities such has New York and Chicago, but there are areas of the world that have similar issues.

What are your reasons for volunteering?
- I feel a lot better knowing I can be there for someone who needs the extra support.
What is the purpose of the organization for which you volunteer?
- I volunteer for multiple organizations, the YMCA and the Boys and Girls Club. These organizations bring children in off the streets and help to guide them in the right direction.
What duties do you perform to aid the organization?
- I help with the after-school program. This is a time where the children complete their homework, and during free time I coach the little kids soccer games.
Why is such an organization needed in your community?
- Florida is a wonderful state for outdoor activities and I feel that the kids nowadays need to experience more time outdoors.
What rewards do you receive from your volunteer work?
- I, like every other volunteer, receive volunteer hours.
What challenges are faced by volunteers in your organization?
- There have been multiple instances where a couple of the kids have accidents while they're playing. Minor cuts and bruises mostly, but we care so much for their safety that sometimes it can be stressful and scary to see them get hurt.
What has volunteer work helped you learn about yourself?
-I learned love working with kids.
What have you done that you feel has significantly touched the life of another person?
- I honestly don't recall any specific instances, but I can tell you that the kids come to love the volunteers they work with and we develop close relationships with every one of them.
What advice could you give someone who wants to volunteer?
- do it. that's honestly all I can say. It's an amazing experience. There's nothing like it.
How long have you been volunteering for you organization(s)?
- It's been about 2 or 3 years now at the YMCA and about 1 at the Boys and girls club.

Isabel L., 17 year old student at Palmetto High, works at the YMCA as well as the Boy and Girls Club. Her responses have explained the importance and rewarding elements of volunteering with these young children. I have also volunteered at the YMCA and I applaud the other adults such as myself putting their time and effort into helping children. It's not an easy task, but in the end the reward is far greater than the time you lost.
