As the weather gets warmer, it’s time to head outside, whether you organize a nature cleanup, or help conserve animals in the wild by tagging them from the comfort of your own home, there are a bunch of Service opportunities that need your help.
Here are this month’s selection of organizations and online Service projects:
1. Record Yourself for Read to Mali
The Mali Rising Foundation works to empower children in Mali by building better and healthier communities and providing decent educational opportunities. By joining this volunteer opportunity, you can dedicate just 1-2 hours a week to recording yourself reading a story. This story will then be submitted for children in Mali to enjoy. RSVP here to read a story!
2. Join Keep Nature Wild and Organize a Nature Cleanup
Sometimes we just need to get away from our screens for a bit, and what better way to do that than organize a nature cleanup with your family or household. You can team up with Keep Nature Wild to give your nature cleanup some support, or just get some great tips for organizing a safe and fun cleanup for everyone!
3. Use YouTube to Connect with People Affected by Corona
Use platforms like YouTube or WordPress to spread positivity during difficult times. Help inspire other IB students with fun CAS Project ideas, get creative and entertain children, or start a series of studying tips for peers struggling with online learning. These platforms are meant for creativity and community building and that is exactly the service that is needed in light of the pandemic.
4. Work with Instant Wild to Tag Animals in Images and Videos
With Instant Wild, you sign up to watch videos and analyze pictures of wild animals to help the conservation of species efforts.
