Today marks the first day of a brand new game for social good. Remember Tag? Now we’re playing Follow the Leader!
Yesterday’s Marin Luther King, Jr. Day brought thousands of people into their communities to serve. Follow the Leader channels that energy and engagement into a more sustainable commitment to service. Follow the Leader looks to take the one-day commitment to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision of community and drive a commitment to community service as a way to address some of the nation’s most pressing challenges.
Follow the Leader is easy, just like when you played it when you were younger. When you register on the Follow the Leader site, you’ll be able to choose a Project Playbook – a step by step project guide for project implementation and management that helps to guide you from the idea of implementing a service project in your community to a successful day of service.
The Project Play books are available in four issue areas:
- Emergency Preparedness and Recovery
By playing Follow the Leader, you’re a game change in your community. Every act of service and each commitment to create change, no matter how large or small, creates an impact in your community. When you get involved with Follow the Leader, you can find a tested an successful service project, download the project toolkit, invite friends and family to help in your project, and be the leader for positive change in your community.
When you play Follow the Leader, you don’t only get the sense of satisfaction of helping to improve your community – you’re eligible for prizes, too! Each month has a different prize, and at the end of Follow the Leader, one person will win a week-long volunteer vacation for two to HandsOn Manilla!
Take today to continue your work from Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and Follow the Leader!
