Doing Good Together

101 Easy, Meaningful Service Projects for Families, Schools, and Communities

by Jenny Friedman, Ph.D. and Jolene Roehlkepartain

from the publisher:

“Schools, workplaces, and organizations are hungry to get families involved in meaningful service opportunities and make an impact in the community. Doing Good Together answers the growing demand for family volunteerism with hands-on service projects focused on easing poverty, promoting literacy, supporting the troops, helping the environment, and more. Each of the 101 self-contained projects provides an overview, time requirements, materials list, step-by-step instructions, debriefing questions, recommended books for kids and teens, and ideas for extending the activity.

The book also features:

  • Strategies for attracting families and choosing, planning, leading, and evaluating successful service projects
  • 15 community-building games to help participants get to know each other and to enrich the family service experience
  • A topical index and index by age that highlights projects for families with young children, elementary and preteen kids, and teens

Who is the book for? Leaders in youth groups, before- and after-school programs, faith communities, family service groups, PTA/PTO and other school-based service initiatives, workplaces, and anyone else eager to promote family service initiatives.” –  Free Spirit Press
