  • Community Cleanup: Pick up litter and clean around neighbourhoods, schools, parks, museums, retirement homes, downtown, waterfront, and/or police stations
  • Share perspectives: Hold a roundtable discussion on youth perspectives of community services available to them
  • Anti-Bullying Awareness: Perform skits and educate about the harms of bullying
  • Talent Show: Showcase a talent or hobby at a local library or community center
  • Car Wash: Have schools compete against one another to raise money for charity
  • Sleepless Night: Create awareness about homelessness. Assist with BBQ, entertainment, Wake-A-Thon fundraiser and speaker series
  • YouTube: Research and report on stories of youth issues/causes in their community by making an internet video or podcast
  • Community Garden: Start a vegetable garden to provide fresh produce to the school cafeteria
  • Tree Planting: Plant trees, flowers or shrubs to restore the environment, protect forest, and support biodiversity
  • Mind Games: Support healthy minds and mental wellness by having a tournament or play session of various board or card games that challenge the mind
  • Parody Party: Provide original lyrics for songs and see who can write the best parody to support an arts-based organization
  • Science Triathlon: Which team can devise the best parachute for an egg to be dropped from a roof? Who can construct the best catapult? Who can guide a laser through a mirror maze? Think of events that test your scientific method and have teams collect pledges for entry to support an environmental or health organization
  • Food/Clothing Drive: Coordinate an effort to provide food and/or clothing to those in need, then consider the processing and collection of these donated items and the delivery of them to the people via an associated non-profit organization
  • Safety Picnic: Work with local police, fire department or other emergency service providers to coordinate an event that raises awareness and funds for a particular organization that is concerned with health and safety; traumatic brain injuries; sports injuries; infant care; workplace safety; violence or another issue that could be addressed
  • Toy Bazaar: Promote and host a toy bazaar and resell gently used toys to community members, then allocate the proceeds toward a cause that helps children in need.
