Pay It Forward Day Sample Activities

Columbus, Ohio (USA) – Pay it Forward community project at Horizon Science Academy

For the past four years my 10th Grade social studies classes completed an assignment called “Project: Imagine: A social experiment.” The guidelines to the project are for groups of students to go out into the community and complete three Pay it Forward plans. The students develop the plan, implement it, and present their information and experiences in our school’s annual Social Studies Fair. The groups then compete for top prizes as their projects are judged by members of the community. Some of the projects completed throughout the years have been:

  • Developing a basketball clinic for youth at a local YMCA
  • Preparing a baby shower for a homeless woman
  • Reading to kids at a local library
  • Cleaning a neighborhood house

I was excited to come across the pay it forward website and see how so many people around the world are doing similar things. Our project will be concluding near the pay it forward day on April 26th.
