The service project is to create posters that bring people together. 

We are made by history. In this activity youth read the stories of philanthropic African Americans and influential related events that made America what it is today.

In this lesson, students examine myths about immigration and research credible sources to find truths to share with others in a Myth-Buster poster. For younger students, they celebrate differences in our school and local community as strengths.

In this one period lesson, students learn about people and children who are homeless and make bedtime bags for children in shelters as their service project.

In this one period lesson, students explore the impact of sharing their experience to make a difference to someone who hasn't had an experience yet. They learn about "paying it forward," also known as serial reciprocity. Students will facilitate a service project that revolves around letters of encouragement. The seniors' letters will offer helpful tips and support for incoming freshmen. This lesson may be adapted for any grade level.
