Service Learning Project

Next semester, for one of my college classes I am required to create and work in a service learning project. I can either join in on someone else's or I can create my own. I have a few ideas already but as I'm looking at them I realize that these projects could possibly use a lot of money and time in order to organize. Possibly too much time and money.

One idea I had was to take some of the local kids out to my university's equine center and arrange for them to learn about horses and possibly ride them for a little bit. I would have to contact the equine center for more information and other details. I have a plan of action already in place but I'm beginning to think that this project would be too big for something for class credit. My intent is to allow let kids learn about and interact with the animal they like it. And hopefully get them involved more with 4H or FFA. It would be voluntary on the kids part.

The other idea I had was that I could contact the local K-9 adoption club on campus and somehow arrange it so that I could take a group of kids to a shelter and have them help out with the work and animals there.

I almost feel as though these projects would both be too big for something I would do as a semester project for a class. What do you guys think? And do you have any other ideas for a service learning project I might be able to put together?
