Social and emotional learning (SEL) programs for k-8.

ThinkGive is a research-based and standards-aligned social and emotional learning (SEL) program empowers youth in grades K-8 to develop self-awareness, social awareness, and relationship skills. They consider other perspectives, build meaningful connections with a wide range of people, and discover their capacity to positively impact their own lives and the lives of others.

The Curriculum

Our social and emotional learning programs (ThinkGive Primary, ThinkGive Elementary, and ThinkGive Middle School) are available for grades K-8 and explore themes of inclusion, identity, empathy, and equity.

Each program provides up to 16 grade-specific lessons. Most of our partner educators choose to teach one lesson per week, but your schedule is completely up to you!

Our programs can be taught standalone or can complement and enhance broader SEL initiatives. While they are designed to build from one grade level to the next, that is absolutely not required; you can teach ThinkGive® in just one or two grades.
