Giving Back Matters!

Education Information

If you are searching for community service ideas for kids, you may be hoping to help them:  1) Meet school or scouting service requirements; 2) Build positive resumes for college; and/or 3) Develop into more empathetic and caring young people.

Whatever the reasons, it’s helpful to understand why learning to give back to others is vital for positive youth development and how parents, schools, and communities play an important role. With the right community service ideas and opportunities from kindergarten through high school, young people can grow from an understanding of how they fit into society to how they can help solve societal problems. This developmental process grows empathy and fosters children’s identities as engaged citizens.

The three most important ways children and teens learn to express their caring for others and evolve toward active citizenship is through:

*Responsible actions


*Leadership

*Innovative thinking

Let the kids volunteer for some community services and learn something deeper than his/ her syllabus teaches!
