Join us for our National Service Project! It allows all chapters to be involved, and it helps you give back to YOUR community. The National Office is inviting all chapters to plan a service event focusing on this year's topic: CHILDREN. Your chapter is welcome to develop any creative service project you can, but if you need ideas, here are a few:
Got some musical talent in the chapter? Teach a few kids for free – Spark creativity and teach skills to kids. Or coordinate with your marching band or club orchestra to give free music lessons to children in the surrounding community (this can be for a semester or a one-time workshop).
Collect and donate supplies to a classroom – Kids should have the supplies they need to learn and grow. Sometimes teachers are left to foot the bill. Your donations can go a long way.
Plan a program around childhood hunger. https://www.nokidhungry.org/what-we-do
Coordinate with a local elementary school to invite low-income students to shadow a college student for a day, eat in the dining hall and/or attend a sports game to promote going to college
Organize an afterschool tutoring program where college students can help local elementary school students with homework.
Work with your athletics department so college athletes can offer free sports clinics for children who may not have the opportunity to play on a team.
Teaching/Education students can volunteer at local schools to help teachers with lesson planning, filing and grading.
Sign up to be a “buddy” for a child in a long-term hospital stay. Buddies can read, play games or simply visit with children to give their parents time to shower, sleep or get food.
Plan a stuffed animal drive and visit sick kids in a hospital to distribute.
Reach out and collaborate with established associations known for their work with children, such as Big Brother/Big Sister, Boys & Girls Club, Toys for Tots, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, Special Olympics, and Children’s Miracle Network.
Once complete, please submit your project information and photos below. Deadline for the National Service Project is June 30, 2020. Chapters will be featured in the 2020 Alpha Lambda Delta National Service Project video.
