Get Your Project Started

It’s fun, it’s free, it’s impactful.

Approve Your Project

The Yuda Bands project is available to all school teachers and students K-college. COVID-19 may limit your ability to sell as a school or club so we’ve opened up the project to all who want to join. To get started you need to find a teacher (or be a teacher) or other adult to sponsor you. It’s usually easiest to to work with an existing club or student council. If you’re not sure where to start, print our Teacher Letter.

Start Your Project

Complete our simple sign up (Google) form so we can collect your contact details. It only takes about five minutes. After submitting your signup an experience project manager will contact you to help you select a student to sponsor, set up a Zoom or Google Hangout with that student, and help you access project tools and resources.

Start Planning and Advertising

In your box you will receive the # of bands you ordered plus advertising materials. It’s best to start advertising the week before you start selling. Be sure to take advantage of your project manager’s experience and online resources available to help you run a successful project.

Meet Your International Student

Yuda Bands is a totally unique service learning project that allows students and teachers in the US to connect with the international student they are supporting. Your project manager will help you organize a video call (Using Zoom or Google Meet) with your international student. We guarantee this will be an experience you’ll never forget!

Sell Bands for Two to Three Weeks

Most sales usually happen on campus during lunch but you can also sell at other venues or distribute bands to club/council members to sell on their own. You will sell the Yuda Bands for $10.

Finalize Your Project

When your sales weeks are over you’ll send us your final numbers using another (Google) form. After submitting your info your project manager will email you a prepaid return shipping label that you’ll print and tape onto the return shipping bag you received with your original box of Yuda Bands. We’ll also email you an official invoice that you can use to process a payment for the bands you sold and the money you raised. We accept checks/money orders, Venmo, Paypal, and credit/debit cards.

Let’s Make Things Happen

Yuda Bands is a registered public charity

Over the past 14 years we have partnered with thousands of schools and worked with schools in every State. If you’re having a hard time getting your admin to approve your project, we can probably help. Part of our mission is to empower US youth and promote global awareness, so it is important to us that your project is approved if you have the desire to sell Yuda Bands at your school.
