The typical Chicktime Chapter meets monthly to serve at the children’s home or other facility that serves the abused and/or marginalized in our society. The Chick Leader is typically responsible for all the materials and supplies needed for her month. It seems that the numbers of children Chicktime groups will serve varies from home to home, and even from month to month within the same facility. Our smallest home typically sends about 7 children a month to Chicktime and our largest home sends around 70 each month.
Please visit the chicktime.com calendar for current group events. You may register online to visit any chapter or contact the leader directly for more information. We all value helping each other succeed!
FYI… it is okay and encouraged to repeat program topics each year, especially those well received by the children your group serves!
The idea is to expose the girls to a wide array of gifts so that they can look inside themselves and identify their own. They may find through this process that they love something that they didn’t even know existed or that they originally thought they wouldn’t like.
Here are some fun ideas:
Scrap booking… the Chick Leader could lead the girls in creating their own scrapbooks or they could each create a page that would go into a scrapbook for someone else, like a military unit serving our country, a missionary group serving others or a cancer treatment center, just any group that needs encouragement, especially if the scrapbook pages were built around poems written by the girls on the subjects of joy, peace, love, hope, etc…
Creative writing… maybe this should come before the scrap booking!
Yoga… Zumba… Balldroom dancing
Volleyball, Basketball or any other sport!
Health and nutrition… someone with a gift for explaining in easy to understand terms why junk food isn’t our friend.
Ministry… we all need empowerment from other women encouraging us to live better lives! If we don’t have any one in our group that feels her gift is ministry, maybe someone in our group has the power of persuasion and could encourage an incredibly inspirational women’s leader to visit our group.
Changing a tire, or the oil for the car they will someday drive…
Balancing a checkbook or hearing community leaders tell their stories…
Pampering with manicures and/or pedicures…
The programs are only limited by the talents, gifts, and passion of your volunteers!!
