Is the Social Problem still an issue today? How?
Tenement Housing
New tenements were built and even those proved to be unsafe. Waterworks was provided but many tenements didn't have indoor plumbing.
No because the living conditions were still terrible and tenements were cramped and unsafe.
Tenements are not a problem today because legislation was passed to regulate the security of buildings in big cities like New York and Chicago
Child Labor
Reformers like Mother Jones focused on the issue of child labor and made it a main goal for her organization because many labor unions looked past it.
There were still child workers working in mines and factories but there were many reformers working to get legislation passed to prohibit it.
Child Labor is no longer an issue because of the strict labor laws that prohibit children working until a certain age
Poverty
Reformers came up with organizations like Jane Addams' Hull House and the emergence of the Social Gospel movement to help the poor
Although there were programs to help the needy, the issue was still very much a problem
Poverty still exists in America and in other countries til this day. There are people that still live without indoor plumbing
Interview with Isabel De Leon
What are your reasons for volunteering?
- I just feel so much better knowing I could help someone that needed that extra support.
What is the purpose of the organization for which you volunteer?
- I volunteer for a couple of different organizations like the YMCA and the Boys and Girl's Club, these are organizations that can help keep children off the streets.
What duties do you perform to aid the organization?
- I help students in the After-School program to do their homework and I coach a soccer team for little kids.
Why is such an organization needed in your community?
- Florida is a state that has great weather for outdoor activities and I feel like that's what kids need nowadays.
What rewards do you receive from your volunteer work?
- I get community service hours for helping out with the kids, but no monetary benefits, which I'm totally OK with.
What challenges are faced by volunteers in your organization?
- Well, there have been several instances where there are accidents with one of the kids while they're playing and they hurt themselves. This affects us just as much as them and their parents because we come to truly care about them.
What has volunteer work helped you learn about yourself?
- That I truly love kids and that I can't wait to have some of my own one day.
What have you done that you feel has significantly touched the life of another person?
- Personally, I don't remember a specific instance in which someone has shown me that I've touched their life but I can say that the kids come to love us a lot too and we develop a close relationship, especially with those in the after school programs and sports teams.
What advice could you give someone who wants to volunteer?
- Honestly, just do it. That's the best advice I could give, volunteering pays off in the end.
How long have you been volunteering for your organization?
- It's been about 3 or 4 years at the YMCA and about 2 at the Boys and Girls Club.
