What can we do?

Give an overview of our resources, share what other teachers and youth leaders are doing, and point you to resources and practices that fit your goals.

Would you like to schedule a 20-min Zoom call at your next staff meeting? We'll help your staff introduce giving and community engagement with resources and activities that empower youth voice and caring.


Learning to Give staff is dedicated to maintaining carefully constructed teaching resources that guide teachers and students to learn the traits of generosity, service, civic action, and revolutionary change.

These organizations support youth development and civic engagement. As you learn about issues, seek connections with community organizations, look for service opportunities, or plan a project, these organizations can help you magnify your impact.
