Creating the Next Generation of Generosity
Involving your youth or sports group in Giving Back to others is a great opportunity for club/youth group leaders to act as role models as they demonstrate helping others in need.
Harness the natural enthusiasm of club members, transfer team skills to a new experience, share ideas and solutions, take ownership and responsibility
What happens when we teach our kids how to give?
- Gain an increased sense of worth and accomplishment from making a difference
• Experience a stronger sense of community
• Develop compassion and respect for different people and conditions, and gain a new perspective on their own lives
• Learn new skills/ use existing skills – in leadership, problem-solving, organisational skills
Areas of volunteering may include but are not limited to Environmental Conservation/Gardening; Disabilities – Intellectual and Physical; Working with the aged; Indigenous communities; Education e.g. refugee and immigrant communities; underprivileged communities; Animals.
