Pretty much a freestyle project.

How about a project working with/for those kids that aren't in the mainstream of school life?

My dd's school does these service projects throughout the school year, so I have many ideas. I'm not sure where you live, but would working with the homeless appeal to your dd? Right now, my dd will be doing a project where they will be making/knitting caps for cancer patients, so if you need some ideas, I'm more than happy to help.

Would LOVE to hear all ideas ---- will send em her way. Afraid homeless would be too dangerous - due to the city we live in & the fact no one would be able to watch over her particularly......unless we could find a different spin on that one.

LIke the cancer patient idea ------ I'll tell her & see what happens.

OF course, I myself, LOVE the medical related thing ----- but she says she's SQUEAMISH - so if she went that route - no guts......altho hats could certainly avoid that. Maybe a schoolwide collection of such items???????

Hmmmm. Interesting idea - I'll throw this one out as well & see if she bites ---- or maybe she'll think about it a while & come up w/something........she does like psychology.

PS ----- Her advisor (who happens also to be Head of Upper School) told her hed' love some sort of bullying survey type project......b/c he himself could use the results. She's not a real SOCIAL gogetter --- so could still think of a twist that way...../.. ;)

Well, now on the way to school, she says she is intrigued by an idea ----- a song by Tim McGraw -----

LIVE LIKE YOU ARE DYING.......

I think it sounds neat --- but we are both wondering how she might put that into a project somehow......

Love that song! It does sound like your dd has some good ideas and I hope she is able to pull it off - it would be an awesome project! I'm not very creative when it comes to that visionary stuff but best of luck to her!

Surprised Bunny didn't mention this, but how about organizing visits to a nursing home?
