Secret Service Leadership !?

Secret Service Project

As the school year ends it gets tough to come up with meaningful activities for our Leadership classes.  Running activities for the school are not very successful.  The Canadian Student Leadership Association shared a great idea on their Leader’s Edge Facebook Page.  It is called the Secret Service project featured on the blog The Fickle Pickle.  Here is the link:

So we modified the assignment for our Centennial students.  A link to the assignment is at the top of the post.  They were to choose a small, medium, and large project that they would do serving others and then give a presentation to the class.  I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the projects our students chose.  They included:

– helping siblings with homework

– cleaning a sibling’s room

– houses, cars cleaned

– breakfast in bed for Mom

– reading for an autistic brother at night

– giving away gift cards to some homeless people

– spending time with a sister suffering from depression

– face painting kids for free

– meeting  Prime Minister Harper while volunteering at a Team Canada volleyball game

– paying for the next person in line at the drive through

-giving up their bus seat for Seniors

-took a friend out for Taco Tuesday

-built a deck with their Dad

-a thank you letter to a long time coach and mentor

I really enjoyed listening to the great acts of service our students were doing.  So if nothing else give yourself a treat when you need a boost and give this a try.  Hopefully it works for you too.
