Our Call To Serve Others: Award-Winning, Student-Initiated Service Projects--A Resource for Schools. NASSP Product #1.
National Association of Secondary School Principals, Reston, VA.
This monograph highlights the projects that high school and middle level students have initiated when they have seen a need in their communities, researched the need, and then figured out a way to answer the need. The monograph categorizes these state and national award-winning, self-initiated community projects as follows: aiding the disadvantaged; helping the sick and disabled; campaigning against substance abuse and violence; improving community facilities; promoting volunteerism; assisting senior citizens; promoting health and safety; teaching and mentoring others; promoting citizenship; improving the environment; helping animals; and recognizing the efforts of others. The monograph is intended to be a project idea source for students to turn to when they are looking for a club or individual project. It states that, once a project has been decided upon, planning it properly will ensure its success. (BT)
