The learner will:
- identify examples of private resources.
- describe the process in planning a service project.
- analyze the cost of the service project and propose a budget.
- select a way to raise funds for the service project .
- recognize that nonprofit organizations are competing for funding.
Students will plan a service project. They will be involved in advertising, fund-raising, researching, goal setting, carrying-out the goal, and evaluating.
Lesson Three: How Much Will this Cost?
Each lesson can be taught as a stand-alone lesson, although students will benefit most if the lessons are taught in conjunction with a service project. The service project proposed in this unit is helping a family who has lost their possessions in a fire. The children's story, A Chair for My Mother by Vera Williams, will initiate conversation and brainstorming about the service project.
