Hall of Icebreakers: Birdie on a Perch
 
01:37
This ice breaker was taught to our 2012-2013 KEYS Service Corps members. The game is called Birdie on a Perch. It's just like musical chairs, except the people are the chairs. One person is a birdie, the other is the perch. They form two circles and must rotate in opposite directions. When the music stops, the partners must get together and somehow get the birdie off the ground. The last team to do so is eliminated. No part of the birdie can touch the ground until the eliminated team is announced. We think this ice breaker is perfect for youth in middle school or high school.

On January 18, 2010, KEYS Service Corps, an AmeriCorps program, hosted the largest and most successful MLK Day of Service event in the history of our program. 275 AmeriCorps members & volunteers generated 1000 hours of service at 25 sites in WIlkinsburg, PA. We weatherized homes, painted community spaces, collected countless bags of trash, cleaned up litter, recycled illegally dumped tires, decoratively painted boards that will be used to board up abandoned buildings, and reclaimed 75 bicycles that will be renovated and donated to a community organization.

On January 20, 2009, KEYS Service Corps members impacted the community of Braddock, PA with eight different service projects.
