I do a lot of experience in Belle Glade ,specially with my school I do community service hours almost every Saturday by cleaning some places and more other stuff. I like being living in Belle Glade, cause that's my hometown most of my family and friends are living there.

Well growing up in Belle Glade wasn't as bad as people make it. Yes its an small town where everyone basically knows everyone. Its more like we family than just neighbor. We try to look out for each other when one is down or falling short in an area. I really enjoy living in Belle Glade its home nomore what. What i would change about Belle Glade is the violets and have more activities that the kids can get into.

Maybe if it weren't for the high poverty level, this community would be a nice area to raise a family. The local churches are very involved and supportive. The schools are small and local community events are sure to bring the whole town together.
