Educational Activities Idea Starters and Best Practices - Thrivent ...


Activity Idea / Description Thrivent Chapter – Pick Your Focus activity Pick an idea, community cause, etc., the chapter can offer to its members and others. Tips / Examples Examples of topics: o o o o o Environment Day – Learn about the environment by inviting a local expert. Senior Citizen Day– Learn about the issues the elderly face, consider helping at a local nursing home. Hunger – Learn about the agencies in your community that help feed the hungry. Recycle Day – Visit a local recycling center and learn how the recycling efforts help the community. Disaster Response Preparedness – Contact your local disaster response agency for offerings. Tips: After your chapter conducts an educational “Pick Your Focus” activity, consider hosting a fundraising or service activity later in the year that supports the needs identified during the educational activity. For example, if a nonprofit organization asks your chapter for funding, consider asking the organization to provide an educational component to chapter members so they can learn about the organizations they help with the fundraiser. Educational Field Trips Remember the field trips you took as a child? Rekindle those memories by learning about a point of interest in your local community. A chapter service team can plan and host an educational activity for chapter members and others in a setting that is fun and a bit unconventional. Important: If your chapter is providing transportation, please review information at > Member Involvement > Member Leader Resources > Programs & Activities > Activity Guidelines. This area will also include information on liability insurance coverage which will be helpful. Possible trip locations: Wildlife park/zoo Nature center Public museums State parks Historical sites in your community Local fire, police, community service agencies Schools: colleges, seminaries, etc. Local community events Example: Invite members and others to a day at the zoo to learn about the animals featured at the zoo and about how the zoo works. Have a 30- to 60-minute wildlife/zoo animal program planned to share with the group, followed by lunch. After lunch, have a guided tour of the zoo. Some zoos offer educational games to play, such as scavenger hunts. Tips: Consider offering these types of activities on the weekend so the whole family can participate.

Activity Idea / Description Dream Dinners Nutrition and good health is important to everyone. Enjoy a blend of nutritional education while sampling nutritious foods. Learning about nutrition can be fun. Tips / Examples Example: Plan a “Dream Dinners Evening” to promote nutritional well-being and offer dinner that includes samples of nutritious meals. Contact a local hospital or technical school to see if a dietician or nutritionist is available to present the benefits of healthy eating. Have participants sample and/or make various nutritious meals. Check your local community for such offerings or check with a local nutritional expert.
