      We are a global community of diverse stories - past, present, and future. Sharing our unique stories helps make a better world as we engage in the philanthropic act of generous listening. The following two resources were written by practicing teachers across the country to guide empathy, decision making, community building, and social justice. Social Emotional Learning: Guides with suggested activities and videos to help students engage in SEL while Learning to Give. Social Justice: Lesson plans by grade level that culminate in a StoryCorps-style project.

      Teacher-created philanthropy education lessons magnify the impact of any academic content with themes of generosity, community, and civic and social responsibility. Perfect base for PBL, service-learning, and student-centered instruction. Lessons align to state standards, including Common Core State Standards, and some international standards.

      Current events provide opportunities to discuss our role in civil society and to decide whether and how to get involved. At Learning to Give, we want to help young people learn about and practice taking action for the common good. Look here for current ideas to spark youth knowledge and action to make a difference.
