Stories of Student Service

Flood the Park with Color, Big and Little Being Kind, and The Green Team Herd are just a few of the amazing service-learning project stories we highlight on our Trending page. 

From the inspiration of the teacher, to the Learning to Give lesson infused, to the way students give time, talent, or treasure to make the world a better place, this is philanthropy education in action!

At Learning to Give, we want to help students learn and practice taking action for the common good—yes, this too is philanthropy. Look here to involve your students' voice and action to make a difference.
