College students like Anna Joubert appreciate the opportunity to make a difference for the generation that follows them. While a student at Texas A&M University, Ms. Joubert participated in a program called “Help One Student to Succeed” (HOSTS) at Mary Branch Elementary in Bryan, Texas. The program, overseen by certified teachers, pairs volunteer mentors like Anna Joubert with elementary school students to provide them with extra help in difficult subjects, especially reading and math.

Other volunteers, including business professionals, are learning by example from students like Ms. Joubert and committing time to HOSTS. In fact, many company leaders who appreciate the benefits of volunteerism furnish interns and employees with “free” time so they may participate in the program.

Aside from Mary Branch Elementary, other participating Texas schools include the Bonham, Fannin, Navarro, Neal, and Jane Long campuses. To find out more about the program, visit the Bryan Independent School District website at and go to the “Community Involvement” page.


Currently a student at Auburn University, Anna Joubert actively participates in her community. In her free time, she enjoys volunteering and working with children. Over the years, Anna Joubert has worked as a camp counselor for JH Ranch in California and participated in several missions as a member of Church of the Highlands in Auburn, Alabama.

Church of the Highlands plans to embark on a mission to Haiti from December 14-21, 2013. In conjunction with Global Effect Ministry, members of the Church plan to travel to Haiti to assist children and orphans by delivering clean water to communities that only have access to contaminated water and spreading the Gospel. The Church conducts missions in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and other locations, as well.

Established in 2001, Church of the Highlands helps individuals connect with God without any preconceived notions or hierarchy. What began as a group of 350 members has now grown into a congregation of more than 20,000 participants. The Church offers prayer, companionship, energy, and creativity while helping members increase and improve their spirituality.

A graduate of Houston Christian High School in Texas, Anna Joubert currently studies communication disorders as a junior at Auburn University in Alabama. Outside of her academic endeavors, Anna Joubert has pursued a number of charitable activities, including serving on the staff at JH Ranch.

Located in Etna, California, JH Ranch is a Christian retreat center that offers principles-based summer programs for spouses, families, and students. Founded in 1980 by the Gene Johnston family, JH Ranch began with a youth leadership program and grew over the years to expand its services to the entire family.

Currently, JH Ranch offers three character-building student programs, two programs for parents and their children, and two programs for couples. Each JH Ranch program lasts for one to two weeks. These programs give participants the chance to take part in a range of outdoor activities while working to build stronger relationships and develop positive values.
