Service scavenger hunt

  • Young man with bundle of sticks

Purpose

Serve others while having fun.

Description

Provide groups of youth with a list of possible service projects, and assign point values to each one according to difficulty. Assign each group, accompanied by an adult leader, to visit nearby homes, streets, or neighborhoods to see how many service projects they can accomplish in that area in an hour. For example, they could clean up litter on a street or offer to pulls someone’s weeds. Have all the groups return at the end to add up their points and share their experiences. Award extra points for youth who perform service that is not on the list. Discuss the following questions: What is our responsibility in our community? Why do we serve? (See Mosiah 2:17.)
