Service Projects for Homeschoolers on a Shoestring Budget

Homeschool teachers may find that service to society may become difficult if asked to contribute in monetary terms. However, contributing time and energy as a volunteer for a cause may not always involve parting with dollars. Here are some ways to give without spending money. Given here are a few service projects that homeschool students can undertake.

Create a Guide for Giving

Let the homeschool students compile a list of all the charities and worthy causes in the city. This should include a brief about the work being done, who the people in charge are, their contact information as well as the details for donating money. Once compiled, the list may be put up on the internet on their personal blog, or emailed to a list of friends and family. Ask people who donate to come back and share a comment on the blog.

Get an Expert to Help

Many charities and causes are founded by regular people who care. Your homeschool students can perhaps find out what their requirements are and find experts in the field who may be able to help. They can identify a few people and approach them personally to state their case. For instance have them come as guest speakers to an event of the charity to raise more awareness about the cause.

Sharing Talent and Time

Making something from scratch and sharing it with the less fortunate. For instance if it’s the holiday season, cards can be made in the art lesson and then written beautiful wishes in. These can then be distributed to the residents of orphanages, old age homes, or even hospital wards. The idea is to bring some happiness to the people who is receiving the cards. There can be carol singing, or even a short skit to be performed at the venue for entertainment purposes.

The concept of giving back to society, when you can, whatever you can, is one that the homeschool students should be able to learn from these service projects. As long as there is a desire to do some good in the world in their hearts, the homeschool parent has sown the seeds for future potential good deeds.
