Service Calendar Challenge -- Vibrant Clubs
This activity encourages independent brainstorming and group collaboration through a club planning activity. The club will make plans for one small community service activity each month throughout the year.

Ideally, members will be asked to contribute their time to the group project during the month and bring small donations/projects to the meeting. Their projects will result in a full year of giving back to others.

Club members will learn that civic engagement and community service can be done through everyday small acts of kindness. By working together, great things can be achieved.

Building Blocks of Leadership
Building Blocks of Leadership is a series of mini-lessons geared towards developing leadership skills in youth. These lessons are 20-30 minutes in length and can be incorporated into existing programs such as day camps, 4-H meetings, program area workshops, and afterschool programming.

Designed for grades 6-8, Building Blocks of Leadership can be adapted to meet the needs of a variety of youth audiences, settings, and experience levels of youth.

Lesson 1 What is a leader?
Lesson 2 Learning your strengths
Lesson 3 Communication is key
Lesson 4 Advocating for your ideas
Lesson 5 Thinking outside the box

Each lesson was created to take 20-30 minutes with a group of approximately twenty youth in grades 6-8. Each lesson plan follows the 4-H Experiential Learning Model of Do, Reflect, Apply, with the intent that youth will participate in an activity, share about their experience, and then leave the lesson knowing how to apply the content learned to their daily lives.

Youth-serving organizations in Iowa are encouraged to contact their local Iowa State University Extension and Outreach county office to explore partnership opportunities in administering this program.
