My Students Want To Help

My students need 15 copies of the book "Kids Guide to Service Projects" because we are interested in helping others. This book has 500 ideas in it so that we can develop projects.

My Students

My students face the challenge of having their Aspira Club, which is a club concerning an investment in Latino youth, being disbanded. As the teacher, I have decided to keep my club students together to complete projects in the community. My students have formed a close bond.

My students are all of Latino descent.

Our high school is in the inner city and many of the students are immigrants. My students enjoyed their after school club, and I would dislike not having the continuity of this time together. We all have a very close bond. they have expressed interest in helping others by completing service projects. I want to help them to successfully do this. The book, "Kids Guide to Service Projects" will point us in the right direction by giving us many novel ideas. My students are mostly poor,and they would like to practice the concept of the giving spirit.

My Project

Each student will have a copy of the book "Kids Guide to Service Projects." We will explore the various ideas and come up with something useful that we can do in the community where we live. In a previous Donors Choose project, I received art supplies which we can make use of in this project. I envision the students possibly visiting nursing homes, gathering groceries for the poor, or helping the elderly maintain their yards. However, this book will provide us with many additional ideas of what we can do. My students will be really excited and happy to be able to continue their club in this fashion. I hope that you as the donor can see how this concept of giving can be a valuable tool in later life.

My project is important because it is teaching my students valuable life lessons about sharing and giving.

Students need to learn this when they are young so that in later life they can employ this strategy. By using this book, we will be able to arrive at some unique ways of sharing and giving.
