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
Digital content includes 45 reproducible handouts.
