Communication and Listening
Packing kits is a great opportunity to sharpen communication and listening skills. Your students will have the opportunity to listen and follow instructions, ask questions for areas of uncertainty, and then work together as a group.
Build a Strong Foundation for Giving Back
The more your students are exposed to volunteering opportunities, the more likely they are to understand the importance. They will have an opportunity to really understand the impact that volunteering can do, creating an emotional connection that motivates them to continue this important work in the future.
