The ThinkGive Difference
Our programs are designed to empower youth to take self-directed and authentic actions that positively impact themselves and others.
We focus on engaging youth who might otherwise not have access to programs like ours. 75% of our partner educators serve under-resourced youth.
Programs develop prosocial skills, including connection (with peers, friends, family, teachers, and community), belonging, confidence, and empowerment.
Our programs are highly adaptable to fit your schedule, goals, and classroom needs. They can be taught as standalone or used to complement and enhance broader SEL initiatives in any environment.
ThinkGive aligns with state and common core standards and CASEL core competencies.
To maximize impact on young people, the ThinkGive team partners with educators and provides hands-on support.
"I learned you can't change others, but you can change yourself and view people from a different perspective."
“I learned that by giving, I can make new friends, achieve trust from others, and become a better person.”
"I learned that being kind to someone in the smallest way can change how they feel the rest of the day."
“ThinkGive made me recognize how I treat others, how they treat me, and how I treat myself.”
"ThinkGive challenged me to think of others first and what I can do for them. I learned that my actions are powerful."
"ThinkGive taught me to be more aware of people around me and that my presence matters."
“I now know how far a simple act of kindness can carry a person. I will be nicer to people.”
“I learned to focus on the good things happening around me, rather than the bad.”
"Our whole class was affected by ThinkGive. It changed people’s mindsets, which changed our class."
“ThinkGive has and will help me be a more considerate, thoughtful, and compassionate person."
SEL for Every Child Fund
Are you at a school or organization that lacks funding for social and emotional learning (SEL) and would benefit from funding that will bring ThinkGive to your students, at no cost?
We believe that kindness matters, every day.
Building a caring school community is vital to creating a positive learning
environment. With your help, we can integrate ThinkGive into classrooms
nationwide and empower more kids to choose kindness.
