Empower Students to Choose Kindness

ThinkGive is a research-based and standards-aligned social emotional learning (SEL) program that empowers youth in grades 4-8 to develop self-awareness, social awareness, and relationship skills. They learn to consider other perspectives, build meaningful connections with a wide range of people, and cultivate the belief that they can positively impact their own lives and the lives of others. 

The Curriculum

ThinkGive’s social emotional learning (SEL) program is centered around students taking action to impact others. They explore questions around identity, social courage, and inclusion, empathize with other people and perspectives, and discover their capacity to effect positive change.

In the ThinkGive curriculum, kindness is a primary tool to enable students to become agents of change in their own lives, schools, and communities. ThinkGive utilizes a unique and innovative combination of in-class learning, student action, self-reflection, and peer-to-peer engagement.
