Service Project Ideas

Because helping others is a part of being a good citizen, any service learning project is a way to increase your citizenship skills. However, good citizens also know about government and other things. Here are a few ways you might combine your citizenship project with service to the community.

  • lead a tour of the local courthouse or other government buildings
  • repair flags for the local VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars)
  • visit with veterans, older family members or neighbors and write a story about them to share with others
  • organize a voter registration drive
  • host an "appreciation day" for police officers, the fire department, elected officials, city/county employees, teachers, or others
  • begin an "adopt-a-grandparent" program
  • help with a community picnic (serve food, set up tables, pick up trash, etc.)
  • create a "community map" of government offices, community service organizations, landmarks, and other important community features
  • help train new 4-H officers
