Random Acts of Kindness Ideas for High School Students
Teenagers can be a lot of fun when it comes to random acts of kindness because they can do a lot more than a toddler can. Today I’m featuring some random acts of kindness ideas for your high school students.
Volunteer in the Community
Have your high school student find a way to volunteer in the community. Maybe there’s a local shelter or non-profit event on your community calendar. Have your high school students get out there in the local community and give back their time to the locals by volunteering to help.
Share Kindness Rocks
Since your high school student is more independent and more artistic, they can have fun making kindness rocks and placing them all over the community. Let your high school students craft up their kindness rocks sayings and designs, then spend an hour walking around the community handing out kindness rocks to random strangers in your hometown or placing them at random spots.
Or create a Kindness garden at school. Plant flowers and add all of the kindness rocks in one area for everyone to enjoy.
Babysit a Sibling
If your high school students have younger siblings then they could offer to babysit so that their parents can go out on a date. This is an excellent way to encourage random acts of kindness by showing their gratitude for their parents’ hard work.
Babysitting a sibling is often an excellent act of kindness for high school students who are old enough to be left home alone for a few hours with younger siblings.
You can also mentor or tutor a younger child.
Random Acts of Kindness Projects for Teens
Host Random Act of Kindness Projects
Get a group of teens together and create several Random Acts of Kindness projects to do throughout the year.
Some ideas are:
- print out random acts of kindness cards that can be given out randomly for one week or a month.
- Bake cupcakes or cookies and drop them off at local libraries.
- Sign up to volunteer as a group
- Leave Kind notes on post-it notes all over the bathroom mirror at school.
- Collect stuffed animals, blankets, and other items that can be donated to an animal shelter. When you drop everything off, spend time playing with the animals.
- Make sandwiches and go around town passing them out to homeless people
- Get out as a group and pick up trash.
Acts of Kindness
These are just a few of my best ideas for random acts of kindness for teens. This is a really fun age where you can encourage your older kids to get out into the community and give back their time and kindness to others.
