Planning a Global Youth Service Day Project: Steps to doing a Coat & Scarf Drive

Hello! Welcome to the Project Stella Resources Blog!

Global Youth Service Day is coming up. We celebrate it every April and it kicks off an important initiative to empower youth to serve and make a different in their community.

In this series on Project Stella Resources, I will provide example of projects that kids can plan to get other children involved in acts of service and acts of kindness for GYSD and year round.

Coat & Scarf Drive

We may start having nicer weather and will be packing up our winter coats but for men, women, and children currently experiencing homelessness, having a warm jacket is needed year round.  This is an easy service project that youth can organize that makes a huge impact!


BONUS: And as a “Thank You” for checking out Project Stella Resources, we want to give you a Bonus! 

Download our Printable Classroom Kindness Wheel and Reflection pages. 

Responsibility horizontal (22)Use the wheel to introduce Daily Acts of Kindness in a fun way! Then your students can reflect on what they did.

Great way to begin and end each school day!

“What a great way to encourage positive relationships in the classroom! Thank you!”

“Perfect to keep next to my desk for easy grab and go!”

“I like that these instructions come from the wheel, rather than from myself or another adult. It seems to motivate students from a higher, more altruistic level. Thanks for this!”

Coat Drive Supplies

  • Big Box located in the front office
  • Fliers to publicize
  • Fleece materials to make scarfs
  • Fabric marker

You can collect coats from home and ask your neighbors to assist.

Coats of all sizes are needed.

You can also cut Fleece material to make scarves to attach with each coat.


How to Make a No-sew Fleece Scarf

Step One – Trim the Edges to make fabric even

Step Two – Cut Fringes- 1/2 wide strips about 4 inches into the ends of the scarf.

Step 3 – Tie (Optional)

Wrap one fringe around your finger to the right, bring around back coming forward on your left then tuck the end down thru the loop you just made and pull gently.


Guiding youth to plan their own service project

It can be overwhelming to think about helping a child lead their own service project. In this video, I go over the checklist I use to help my daughter and her friends plan their own project so they have more ownership and feel more empowered.

Responsibility horizontal (29)The Complete Guide for Student Leaders to Plan Service Projects 

For the purpose-drive student looking to be a leader on campus and make a massive impact on the world

I’m Ready to Do This!


Here’s what I already know about you.

  • You are a passionate, purpose driven woman who wants to make a difference in her community
  • You are a high-achiever and want to use your skills and talents to serve a greater purpose
  • You want to be an Agent of Change and provide solutions to problems and injustices around you.
  • You want to get clear on your vision and how to make the most positive impact you can

You want to leave a legacy…


This Complete Guide for Student Leaders to Plan Service Projects is THE step-by-step course for the driven student who is serious about creating positive change that lives on long after you leave campus.  

Sign me up. I’m so ready.

You Want: Clarity, Support, and a Step-by-Step Action Plan

If you know you could benefit from the daily support from other student leaders just like you, specific how-to€™ strategies, as well as the €˜what to do€™ direction from someone who’s been there before you…and who can save you a lot of time and effort so you reach your dreams 10 times faster.

Then YES this is the course is for you!

Like attracts like – when you surround yourself with big dreamers, it totally rubs off on you. That energy and focus can be unreal!!

Support is everything.

Being an “Agent of Change” can be lonely. You had a passion and will do anything to make it happen but you risk putting academics and a social life to the side.  Your friends don’t seem to understand that language you are speaking.

This program includes a community of other students so you get that support and build relationships!

You also have easy to implement action steps so you can set aside time to still have a social life and study for your classes.

Imagine that you get to learn from the leader who has done it before and received recognition from the President of the United States AND served with the Corporation for National and Community Service. You get all of their secrets that to create a service program that changes lives. You also get to learn from all of the other members of the group. Best resources to develop community partners? How to recruit volunteers? Strategies to raise money and get sponsors for a successful project?

Someone in the group has probably done it and you can work together to help each other out.

Sick of trying to do this whole thing all by yourself?

You need this program.


Why take this Course?

  • In high school, I told my counselor that I wanted to make a difference. I received the Ray A Kroc Youth Achievement award for my community service efforts (and free McDonald’s for a year).
  • Then I received a full-tuition scholarship for being an Outstanding Student in Community Service.
  • In college, I started the first Colleges Against Cancer organization which spread to universities all over the United States and gave me the opportunity to plan youth conferences (regional and national) with the American Cancer Society.
  • My volunteer efforts earned state and national recognition – the youngest recipient of the 13WMAZ Straight for the Heart Award, Daily Points of Light Honoree, and Presidential Volunteer Service Award Lifetime Achievement.
  • I now serve as a Director of Student Engagement with 18 years of experience training student leaders to succeed and am a Chapter Advisor of The National Society of Leadership and Success.

Training student leaders to make a difference is my passion! 

And I am here to support you so your dream comes true.
