  • New year, new members

     

    Happy New Year to you and your club! Start the new year by having your club come up with ways to invite new members to join the club. Encourage your members to bring a friend to a meeting or have your club host a recruitment event such as an ice cream social or fun service project in which anyone can participate.

    Involving members in recruiting peers to get involved, whether it be one project or joining the club, is an excellent opportunity for students to exercise the courage to engage.  For a list of recruitment ideas, refer to page 46 of the K-Kids & Builders Club guide.

  • Club service project: Advocacy

      

    As one of your club’s next service projects, consider an advocacy project where members learn about an issue and encourage others to take action. Help your students determine an advocacy project by having them brainstorm issues or topics that they have a passion for and would like to bring more awareness to in their school or community. Then have the club determine ways that they can focus on this issue by planning an advocacy project around it.

    Advocating for change is a way for students to exercise the courage to engage.  They will have opportunities to connect with others and practice effective communication skills around an important issue. For a list of advocacy project ideas for your club, refer to page 28 of the K-Kids & Builders Club advisor guide.

  • Club service project: Spread the love

     
    Help your club celebrate Valentine’s Day by remembering others. Your members may decide to make a valentine for someone who helps them on a daily basis such as their garbage collector, bus driver or cafeteria worker. Your club members may also want to work together to make a  Valentine’s care package filled with letters and drawings to send to the troops to let them know they are appreciated.

    Be sure to provide opportunities for a discussion prior to selecting a project to help students develop a passion around appreciation and to connect this passion to the project. Going through this process with the club members allows students the opportunity to discover their heart to serve.
