I developed this Leadership & Service Class Schedule while my teens were in high school.
This course will guide the student through life changing issues teenagers face such as self-image, peer pressure, achieving goals, and more. Then, the student will be required to pinpoint a need in the community and coordinate a group activity to help.
The class uses three different books plus a workbook to guide the student through a development of their personal skills. They will then brainstorm a service project that they will coordinate and complete from start to finish.
The weekly class schedule is available for you to use also.
Here are the resources we used in our Leadership & Service Class:
- The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey
- The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens Personal Workbook by Sean Covey
- Do Hard Things by Alex and Brett Harris
- Start Here by Alex and Brett Harris
- Printable Daily Schedule – available in our free resource library
The elective high school class is designed to be completed over the course of twenty plus weeks. The scope of the chosen service project will determine how long it takes beyond twenty weeks.
The project could be something very complex or just a simple service project. My student wrote and received a grant from a financial institution to create non-slip socks for a local nursing home. The grant provided the funds to purchase the supplies. She then hosted a party with friends to “paint” the socks and deliver them.

This class has multiple benefits. In addition to developing your student’s character, service projects are helpful in winning scholarships!
This homeschool high school class could be counted as a half credit or whole credit, depending on how many hours it takes your student to complete everything. Keep track of the hours they spend so you will know how much credit to give.
