One of the things that I love to do is community service.  I constantly look for ways and opportunities to give back and to organize groups to serve the community.  I truly believe that engaging in service is critical to living a full and complete life.  Therefore, as my twins get older, I’ve been asking myself:

What can I do to start to plant the seeds of community service into the hearts of my children? 

How can I begin to talk to them about community service?

What is the right age to start to encourage my children to participate in community service and what projects can they work on?

To help me to get the answers to these questions, I invited Marjorie Moore onto the Phenomenal Moms Podcast.  Marjorie has 15 years of professional nonprofit organization management experience and has tons of experience helping families find the right service projects for their children.

In this podcast episode we discuss:

  • How to find service projects and volunteer partners
  • Community service ideas for families with children of all ages
  • How to talk to your children about the importance of service
  • Life lessons that engaging in service will teach you
  • The dos and don’ts when working on a service project
  • The surprising things you need to ask about or know before you attend a service project
  • How to help your child choose a service project for school community service hours
