Chores for Change is a service program designed for children and youth. Whether at home, school or in another group setting, the program shows students how they can create local and global change at the same time. The program invites students to volunteer in their communities while raising funds to support our mission around the world.
How does it work?
• Students recruit sponsors to pledge donations for time they spend doing service activities.
• Once their service project is complete, participants collect pledges in support of Heifer’s work to eliminate hunger and poverty around the world.
• Participants learn lifelong lessons about how they can improve social issues through service, at a local level and around the world.
Volunteer projects may include handing out food at soup kitchens, working in a community garden, doing a river cleanup or reading to younger children. We hope that students discover the benefits of service and learn how their interests and talents can benefit others.
