    Awareness & Volunteer Activities 

    Choose an important social issue, such as child labor, every month and hold an awareness event. Select relevant books to feature as part of a must-read list and find a community leader to give a talk in the school library on the last Friday of the month. Hold an essay contest regarding a topic during the month and award a prize to winning essay. Or, choose an organization and hold a fundraiser or volunteer project. Another idea is to hold a book drive and ask students to donate used books. Have older students sign up to volunteer in an adult literacy program, helping adults learn to read.

    Reading Workshops 

    Students who need help mastering reading- or writing-related skills could find a monthly workshop helpful. Devote a few hours a month (after school) to leading a workshop on skills such as creative writing, reading comprehension, standardized test-taking or speed-reading. For younger students, offer help with writing in cursive, forming letters or reading aloud. Ask older, high-achieving students to lead the workshops. Provide the workshops free of charge and serve light refreshments.

    Historical Database 

    Students can gather general information about older residents of the neighborhoods around them, ask them about the development of the local neighborhoods through time and ask questions about historical events that older community members have lived through. After gathering this information in interviews, students can make professional text and audio documentation that will be kept in the school library.
