The purpose of this workbook is to guide students in creating a service program that will meet a community need and provide meaningful opportunities to a volunteer team.
By breaking the process down into very simple steps, students can take practical steps to make their vision a reality. The questions in this workbook help prepare student leaders to meet their program goals.
After working to train volunteer coordinators over the past 18 years, I created this workbook to help others in planning their service events.
An excellent quality resource that students loved!! Thank you for a well made, fun, easy to use resource, that worked so well in my classroom!Coast 2 Coast Teacher
What a wonderful resource to manage a service project. The workbook covers every part of managing a project from managing the volunteers, event management to organizing media and outreach to the community. This is essential to a well thought out and managed project.Learning in an Hour
This is a great handbook. The questions are thoughtful and will help my student leaders think through their project. Breaking it into sections also helps take what can seem like a daunting task and make it seem more manageable. Lots of good stuff here. Thank you!Classroom 214
