After years of University
students merely limiting
community service work to
volunteer days in Detroit, stu-
dents in the Michigan Com-
munity Scholars Program
residential learning commu-
nity formed the Brightmoor
Youth Garden Partnership,
an organization that aims to
develop long-term partner-
ships with Detroit's Bright-
moor community.
LSA junior Sandhya
Kajeepeta, a BYGP executive
hoard member, said Bright-
moor is a predominantly
black Detroit neighborhood
that confronts issues of pov-
erty, crime and racial ten-
sion. According to Kajeepeta,

the club - comprised of 25
members that host four to
five mass volunteer days each
year and contribute a total of
about 8,000 hours of service
work - originally formed
to help Brightmoor youth,
but now works to benefit the
community in any way pos-
sible.
"(We form) relationships
with the community and use
all the resources we have as
University students to mobi-
lize them and help them
with whatever they need,"
Kajeepeta said. "It is all about
them and what they hope for
their community."
LSA junior Sam Moryk-
was, a BYGP executive board

member, said the club hopes
to provide University stu-
dents with a unique learning
experience by involvingcthem
in the Brightmoor commu-
nity.
"Each aide has many skills
that can benefit the other
side," Morykwas said.
Kajeepeta said she has
learned more about Detroit
and the power of community
relationships through her
involvement.
"Every time I go there I
learn something completely
new ... nothing compares to
being around the people who
live in Brightmoor," Eajeepe-
ta said.
