Strengthen Group Bonds with Real Community Impact

We’re overflowing with creative, memorable volunteer experiences for your group! Bring Seeds of Caring to your classroom, scout troop, youth group, or Parent Teacher Organization.

We provide programming for Groups and Schools in two ways:

Student Involvement
A Trusted Resource for Your Classroom

We love partnering with educators to shape our future civic-minded leaders! From themed classroom parties to school calendar initiatives and more—we provide you with fun service projects that align with your preschool and elementary school’s required social-emotional learning standards. Through our Anywhere Projects, as well as our Kindness Corps Program, we offer dozens of flexible, authentic, age-appropriate volunteer opportunities for your students to connect with and impact their community.

There's Strength in Numbers

At Seeds of Caring, we love to work with groups of kids and their caring grown-ups to make the world a kinder, more connected place! Whether after-school clubs, religious education groups, country clubs, daycare centers, and more—we inspire your group to make a real difference in their community with convenient volunteer opportunities.

Check out our Anywhere Projects, as well as our Kindness Corps Program, to see what works best for your group.

Anywhere Projects

Sowing Seeds of Empathy Anywhere

Our Anywhere Projects make it easy for you to volunteer as a group—any time, anywhere! Whether packing sack lunches for hungry neighbors, conducting a winter clothing drive, or creating Brown Like Me Care Kits to combat systemic racism and promote equal representation—these projects provide you with guided learning discussions and activity instructions needed to help your group of kids better understand critical challenges in their community and make a difference locally.

While our activity guides are appropriate for most children ages 2-12, grown-ups are invited to modify the discussion as needed for kids on the upper or lower end of our stated age range. See a sample Anywhere Project here.

Although each and every one of our Anywhere Projects are open to group participation of any number, look for the green “Group Friendly” icon on our events page for opportunities that are low-cost and great for groups! Take a look at our group friendly calendar to plan ahead.

Kindness Corps Program

Empowering Kids to Meet Local Community Needs

Our Kindness Corps program invites student groups in grades 2-4 to use their hearts, hands, and minds to reflect and take action on a variety of community needs. Aligned with the State of Ohio Social Emotional Learning Standards, children grow in kindness, empathy, and leadership as they work together on service projects benefiting local nonprofits. This program includes a step-by-step curriculum and all needed program supplies. Perfect for classrooms, after-school programs, scout troops, and kindness clubs. Learn more about our 2022-23 school year program below!

If these volunteer options don't meet your group's needs, please contact us to discuss how we can best support your involvement with Seeds of Caring.

This, my friends, is how our world gets better. This is how our world heals—by letting our young people lead us.

Helen, Teacher Participant

I’m so glad I found this organization! Teaching kids + breaking stereotypes + service projects + SEL + DEI = me :) You all have made it very easy to integrate this into the classroom, so I can’t thank you enough!

First Grade Teacher

Lots of great discussion and two of my students (sibs) were so impacted that they set up a “hot chocolate stand” at their home over the weekend and raised over $300 to donate to our local shelter.
