Do you want service learning activities and projects for middle and high school kids that make a difference on the local, national, and global scene?
This workbook, part of Free Spirit’s How to Take Action! series by internationally renowned service learning expert Cathryn Berger Kaye, is what you need.
A Kids’ Guide to Hunger & Homelessness teaches about issues and solutions related to hunger and homelessness, such as:
- the definitions of hunger, homelessness, and poverty
- its causes and effects
- populations that are often affected
- responses to hunger and homelessness throughout history
- food and clothing banks
- giveaway gardening
- building projects
- emergency survival kits
Kids explore what others in the world (including young people) have done and are doing to address the issues, find out what their community needs, and develop a service project. The workbook includes facts, quotations, real-life examples, write-on pages, resources, a note to adults—and a lot of inspiration to get out there and make a difference in the world. Includes exclusive interviews with author and activist Francis Moor Lappé, and Lindsey Lee Johnson, author of Soul Moon Soup, the story of a girl living on the streets with her mother.
Teachers, parents, and group leaders: Use this workbook in a classroom or youth-serving organization, after-school program, or as a family. It can be used on its own or as a companion to The Complete Guide to Service Learning.
