School breaks offer K-Kids members and officers an opportunity to continue being service leaders. Encourage them to show their caring and use their skills to help in new ways. These ideas can get them started:
- Be a leader and do something on your own, like going through your books, games and clothes to donate to Goodwill or a local organization.
- Do acts of kindness with family and neighbors. For ideas visit Random Acts of Kindness.
- Join with family to do a service project. Find an issue everyone cares about. Working in a community garden, for example, can get everybody involved. Check out the American Community Garden Association map or search “community gardens” and your town’s name.
- Do a project with friends. Try making fleece blankets for a homeless shelter or baking cookies for residents at an assisted living home.
- Spend time with a younger sibling or cousin reading to them or doing something they like to do.
- Help your grandparent or an elderly neighbor with projects, like yard or home cleanup.
Let your members know that however they decide to serve others, they are sharing who they are as a young leader and a member of K-Kids.
