Students can make a difference in the world. Every year, thousands if not millions of American teenagers engage in meaningful service projects in their schools and communities. While there are many who might belittle the roles these students take, the evidence is clear - students today care enough to give of their time and their resources to improve the world around them. The proof is not difficult to find.
The national office hears from hundreds of schools and student leaders each year about the great projects they're doing. We have compiled these successful service project ideas into a list (below) in order to help you plan service projects for your chapter!
Organizing a Coat Drive
This guide provides clear, thorough directions for any chapter looking to sponsor a coat or clothing drive during the year. Thanks to our colleagues at "One Warm Coat" for this contribution to our site.
Chapters Doing Great Things: 2011-2012
During the 2011-2012 school year, more than 80 NHS and NJHS chapters were recognized in “Chapters Doing Great Things” – a regular feature of the e-newsletter, Honor Society News, produced by NASSP each month August through June. These short accounts of chapter activity originate in news stories brought to the attention of the national staff. This year, stories come from schools in 33 states. We provide this collection of each month’s stories as a resource for other chapters. Chapters wishing to submit reports can email them to email@example.com with CDGT in the subject line. Congratulations to all of the chapters referenced below.
