Our youth group at church done this one several years ago and you can make money at no or very little cost. We advertised to our church that the kids in the youth would be for rent between such and such dates, (allow one or two weeks for the project). Have youth leader to be the one people check with to rent a kid. They can sign up for as many days as they want and request the youth they want. They must make sure the jobs they have for the youth to do are jobs that they can perform without hurting themselves. There is different ways you can charge. You can do it by donation per hour or per job or you can set a price such as $10.00 and hour. If two or more youth are requested at the same time by the same person make sure they pay per youth. Just make sure the people that are renting is people that you know and trust to allow your youth to go there.
Youth leader may have to make sure parents can help with transportation.Have fun. Some of our youth decorated Christmas trees and put up Christmas decorations, shovel snow, swept side walks, raked leaves, planted a tree and flowers, mow grass, clean house, babysat and a variety of other jobs. We did Rent-A-Kid during different times of the year. Have fun with it.Submitted by: Ramona M, UMC, Perryville, KY
We have included a number of do-it-yourself fundraising ideas in this section that offer a break from traditional product sales. They were developed by groups just like yours in an attempt have a little fun with their fundraiser. Some of them are tried and true while others show a lot of creativity … and even wackiness in some cases. All of them are obviously not appropriate for every group, but sometimes, with only a little modification, your might find some fund raising ideas that are perfect for your group. If you have an idea for a do-it-yourself fund raiser you are willing to share with others, please send it to us via email. Include anything and everything you would want to know if you were hearing the idea for the first time.
