First, the students will engage in couponing lessons through a local "Extreme Couponing" instructor. Second, each student will be given $5 and 2 weeks to purchase as much as they can for a "needy family." Third, the students will meet up for a "Show and Tell," in which they share their strategies for budget savings, as well as the actual goods that they purchased. Fourth, all items collected will be donated to a local food bank by the service learning coordinator. Fifth, the students will then engage in a round-table discussion with local senior citizens from an independent living group, to discuss ways in which people have coped with economic hardship throughout the ages. Sixth, the students will complete a reflection on their experience, as well as a survey designed to measure the success of the project.
