Is your organization looking for service project ideas? An increasing number of schools, workplaces, and organizations are doing family service projects as a way to make positive change in their communities. The 101 projects in Doing Good Together answer this growing demand for family service with hands-on projects focused on easing poverty, promoting literacy, supporting the troops, helping the environment, and more.
Each of the 101 self-contained family service projects provides an overview, time requirements, materials list, step-by-step instructions, debriefing questions, recommended books to help kids and teens do or learn more, and ideas for extending the activity.
The book also features:
- Strategies for attracting families and choosing, planning, leading, and evaluating successful family service projects
- 15 community-building games to help participants get to know each other and to enrich the community service experience
- A topical index and index by age that highlights projects for families with young children, elementary and preteen kids, and teens
Who is the book for? Leaders in before- and after-school programs, youth groups, faith communities, family service groups, PTA/PTO and other school-based service initiatives, workplaces, and anyone else eager to engage in family service projects.
The service project ideas in this book are unique, practical, and specially created to be nonintimidating, so families will feel encouraged to participate—and keep participating.
