What can we do?

Give search tips, overview our resources, share what other teachers are doing, and point you to lessons that fit your goals.

Would you like to schedule a 20-min Skype call at your next staff meeting? We'll help your staff get started finding lessons that teach giving and community engagement in the context of grade-level expectations and your school goals for student empowerment.

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.
