We had a meeting tonight and we are trying to raise money to send people to GYLC (Governor’s Youth Leadership Conference) either this month or the next and to the National SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) Conference in Washington D.C in June.

1)How about designing myspace pages for your peers? Make out a questionnaire and have them fill it out to find out the type of page they’d like, then make it for them. Give them the password of course, then they can go and change it.

2)Consign your friends items for them on ebay. Specialize in something you know a lot about (ie. teen fashion, skateboards, etc) Charge a percent of sale price. Draw up a contract and make them sign it with all the specifics…like who makes the price,,,,who pays the insertion and selling fees, how you will pay them and how long it will take…what happens if item doesn’t sell, etc. You could also go to yard sales to find items to sell…could be an excellent group effort.

3) Offer classes to adults on how to make sure your child is safe online. Teach parents of middle schoolers how to find out what their children are looking at, which sites they need to be weary of, etc. Who better to teach them than you?

4) Offer parent’s night out babysitting. Find a church, rec center, etc that would let you use or rent their space and host a parent’s night out once a month, or week, or whatever. Show the kids a movie, do a craft, something to keep them occupied while their parents go out for a date night.
