Imagine spending the day with a fluffy, four-legged friend or listening to the tunes of a bird chirping. Pet services are a great way to fundraise, as well as learn key life skills, such as independence and responsibility. Hours are flexible to suit you in your busy day-to-day schedule. You can mind the pet at your own home or at the owner’s home, and for some pets you could offer a walking service in the local area!
Tutoring is a great way to not only help others but also to raise funds for your summer team.

Tutoring allows you to set your own rates, which can then be negotiated as necessary with those people you are tutoring.
