Our Programs

No matter which ThinkGive social emotional learning (SEL) program you choose, all follow our program cycle with the same student experience and outcomes — students are empowered to use kindness and empathy to connect with each other, their communities, and their world.

ThinkGive helps teachers foster caring and inclusive classrooms.

ThinkGive students give—their support, their gratitude, their effort, and so much more. They experience firsthand the impact their positive words and actions have on others and themselves. Students build a strong sense of self, make meaningful connections, and learn to lead with empathy and kindness.

Our experiential learning cycle engages elementary and middle schoolers.

ThinkGive Elementary + ThinkGive Middle School

Our flagship programs are available for grades 4-8 and explore themes of inclusion, identity, empathy, and equity. Each program provides up to 16 individual grade-specific 30-minute lessons. Most of our partner educators choose to teach one lesson per week, but your schedule is completely up to you!

While our programs are designed to build from one grade level to the next, that is absolutely not required; you can choose to teach ThinkGive in just one or two grades. Check out the relevant Scope + Sequence below to understand the curriculum build.

ThinkGive programs can be taught standalone or can complement and enhance broader SEL initiatives.

Social Justice Spotlight This program inspires students to use kindness and empathy to stand up for justice and inclusion. Students explore and take action around: the difference between equity and equality; the importance of consistent, small actions to make change; and how empathy helps us authentically acknowledge someone and build connection.
