School or Youth Registration

Youth groups and/or schools are also invited to participate in Day of Caring. These groups are unique in that they identify both a volunteer project and a team to complete that project. Below are some great ideas to help you as you plan your project.

  • Draw pictures to brighten patient hospital rooms

  • Create a mentoring or tutoring program at your school
  • Organize a "senior prom" for your community's senior citizens
  • Engage youth from different neighborhoods/ cultural backgrounds in a flower or tree-planting project in a park or on side streets in each community
  • Hold a community-wide or neighborhood cleanup
  • Donate food to a local shelter or food bank
  • Organize a youth/senior "get together."
  • Organize a volunteer challenge for the clubs at your local school
  • Sponsor a poster competition to promote a drug-free lifestyle or another important community issue
  • Make/decorate knapsacks or baby quilts
  • Help sort and/or serve food
