Group and Individual Service Projects

Group Service Projects

Obviously many 4-H members, Girl Scouts, and Boy Scouts will not be over 16. These groups will not be put to work on our regular Volunteer Days, but will work on their own service projects at the farm. We are happy to provide a place for you to meet the objectives of your mission and complete your goals.

  • 4‑H programs are available for children ages 8-18. 4‑H Cloverbud programs are available for children ages 5-7. 4‑H programs are available through local 4‑H clubs, 4‑H camps, in-school and after-school programs. With the support of adult mentors, youth select from a menu hands-on project ideas to complete.
  • Boy Scouts Second Class requirement: Participate in an approved (minimum of one hour) service project. Star and Life requirement: … take part in service project(s) totaling at least six hours of work. These projects must be approved by your Scoutmaster. Service projects required for Second Class, Star, and Life ranks may be conducted individually or through participation in patrol or troop efforts. They also may be approved for those assisting on Eagle Scout service projects.
  • The Gold Award is the highest and most prestigious award that Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors can earn.  A project must involve a minimum of 80 hours and include the following steps: identifying an issue, investigating it thoroughly, getting help and building a team, creating a plan, presenting the plan, gathering feedback, taking action, and educating and inspiring others.  It is more than just a good service project – it encompasses organizational, leadership, and networking skills. 
  • AmeriCorps members help individuals with disabilities build critical skills; members provide enriching and experiential mentoring sessions, as well as creating fun and exciting special activities to further enhance skill building. Members will also come together for service projects to benefit partnering agencies in the Jacksonville community.
  • Have a Hart Day is a very loosely organized  initiative to organize & mobilize friendly humans to spread service and reckless optimism all over the world! Occasionally a local group of "Hartosexuals" decides that it is time for another H.A.H.D. and will spark a service project day for a local organization.
