Just wanted to write about all the great work the in-school projects are doing. At some schools we are working in they are working together to plan their own service projects. As a team they are deciding where they want to volunteer and making calls. They are learning how to plan and organize a group, even to the point of doing their own service learning.
At another school, the group is grower in numbers to raise money for international water systems through water.org. They are selling bread, planning an event, and standing outside local business to gain funds. They are also adopting families over the holiday families by taking donations to support their community.
Another school, just finished a shoe drive to be sold to raise money for basic needs in other countries. They went around to businesses and talked with the owners to let them put out collection boxes to help raise awareness in the community.
In a few other schools, we are working on starting service clubs to bring the experience to the students and the school. So much is going on in the schools at YVCKC! Let's remember all their hard work!
