4 Ways Yuda Bands Will Impact Your School

4 Ways Yuda Bands Will Impact Your School

1. Awareness

LET’S MAKE IT PERSONAL

Each project leader and his or her team, personally select the student your school will sponsor by reading biographies and looking at pictures of kids in need. They then publicize about the project and the student they’ve chosen. By doing a Yuda Bands project, students realize there are people in the world who are far less fortunate than they are. This leads to an increase in gratitude for their own circumstances and a desire to help those who have less. Studies show that both gratitude and volunteering counteract depression.

Skype Call

One of the most powerful parts about a Yuda Bands project is actually meeting the student your school is sponsoring through a Skype video call.

2. School Unity

As part of a Yuda Bands project, student leaders are taught about starting a movement and creating unity in the school. One project leader described the enthusiasm and spirit of service that spread through her school as “the Yuda Bands fire”. Yuda Bands are more than just bracelets. Wearing a Yuda Band means you care. It means you’re part of a movement to lift and help others. It represents the power to make a difference. 

This project was amazing, and even more than helping Migdalia, our Guatemalan student whom we sponsored, the project also showed us what our club and our student body was really capable of. This has opened the doors to so many more possible volunteer projects.

I would have to say the most rewarding part of the experience was actually meeting Charlotte by Skype.  She was AMAZING and we were very emotional, especially when one of our students sang a special song to Charlotte and she danced.  We learned many wonderful things about her culture and shared interested facts about us here in Texas.  A wonderful time was had by all!!  I would have to say it’s going down as one of my favorite memories in my 22 years of education.  My students and I won’t forget it
