Club service project: Gratitude letter

According to research by Key Club partner Project Happiness, “The more that gratitude and appreciation are practiced, the more this perspective becomes second nature. The scientific explanation is that repeated behavior changes the neuropathways of the brain. It’s a simple and effective way to shift a student’s mind to positive, which enhances learning and gets the day off to good start.” 

Consider starting your club meetings with a “gratitude check-in.” Each club member talks about three things he or she is grateful for that day. Another way your club members can show appreciation is by writing a gratitude letter to someone who has influenced or inspired them. Have members either mail or hand deliver their letters. Here’s a letter template that your club can use for this project.
