Fundraising for Educational Travel Tours – Student Tutors

Whether your students are helping their parents with the cost of their trip or saving money for souvenirs, fundraisers are a quick and easy way for students to generate money for an educational tour. Each week in April I’ll be sharing a new idea that will put the FUN in fundraiser! If you can’t wait, you can download the fundraising guide now.

Fundraiser Idea: Start a Language Lessons & Mentor Program After School

What better way to promote learning and leadership than providing an after school tutoring program for young learners? Advertise with the PTA and elementary schools and enroll students for private tutoring. Tutoring is very valuable for younger students, but expensive for parents; this program offers tutoring for a reasonable price. Older students learn how to teach others and become excellent role models for younger students.

Student tutors is a fantastic pre-trip fundraiser for your students because they’ll get the added benefit of practicing their language skills before the trip!

When planning any fundraising event, don’t forget these three keys to successful fundraising:

  1. Plan an advertising campaign – you need to spread the word to be successful!
  2. Get help from students and parents
  3. Save money on costs – ask for donations!
