Family Service Ideas Summer 2017

Family Service Ideas: Summer 2017

Summer months bring long days, warm weather, school vacations - and great opportunities for kids to volunteer and families, camps, and youth groups to serve together. While service improves the community, kids also benefit:

  • It gives children and teens an identity and purpose.
  • They develop vital 21st Century skills like critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication.
  • Families who help others together benefit from important quality time. Volunteering provides an opportunity to connect with your child and learn new things together.

Some suggestions for a successful service experience:

  1. Start with things your kids love to do.
  2. Consider issues your kids care about.
  3. Combine passions + issues for impact.
  4. Encourage, support and help your kids learn.

When you're ready to plan your summer, you can find 20 summer service ideas at www.YSA.org/summer

Grace & peace,
