There are two ways I have helped youth get involved in charitable endeavors during sessions.
I had a youth group that earned over 200 GBP / 300 USD during the morning break (approx. 30 minutes) at their school with the Krispy Kreme Fundraiser – they sent Christmas presents to 30 homeless youth in Rwanda, including postage, with that amount.
I had a youth group that moved 60 bags of dirt that were each 30 gallons for an elderly gentleman. He had done some work in his yard but was unable to clear all the rubble, so our group were able to do this in one afternoon by partnering with a community action day that was happening in our area.
