As a Leadership teacher, it's hard to find free or cheap curriculum for character building and community service, so I have created some of my own projects. I have a 7th/8th grade mixed class, and I use these projects every year because students like to do them again just researching someone else or interviewing a new friend. Included in this file is:
Leader Research Project
Community Service Project
I usually start the year with some games/activities about leadership skills. Then I have them write a short paragraph about the leadership skills they think they possess and the ones they want to work on. From there, we do the Leader Research Project where they research a famous leader. 2nd Quarter we work on the Character Essay and the Communication Project (after doing some lessons on perspective and communication). 3rd Quarter I always do the Community Service Project and I give them basically the entire quarter because it's a big project. I end the year with writing a letter to next year's class about their year in Leadership.
