ThinkGive SEL Programs (K-8)

ThinkGive empowers youth to take actions that positively impact themselves and others; building character, confidence, and connection.

Our 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.


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

Our SEL Curriculum

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 curriculums already in use. 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.

The ThinkGive Difference

  • Our programs center around youth taking small and authentic actions that positively impact themselves and others.

  • ThinkGive successfully moves the needle on developing prosocial skills including connection (with peers, friends, family, teachers, and community), belonging, self-esteem, and empowerment. To be sure, students overwhelmingly report that after participating in ThinkGive programming, they feel empowered that they can be a force of good and make an impact on their world.

  • Our programs are easy to implement in any environment and can be tailored to fit each educator’s schedule, goals, and classroom needs. They can be taught standalone or can complement and enhance broader SEL initiatives.

  • The ThinkGive team offers hands-on support throughout, serving as an effective partner for educators—all to ensure that the program has the most impact on the youth.

  • ThinkGive incorporates CASEL core competencies and adopts state and common core standards.

  • We are focused on bringing our programming, at no cost, to youth who otherwise might not have access to programs like ours. 75% of our partner educators serve under-resourced youth.

SEL for Every Child Fund

Are you at a school or organization that lacks funding for social and emotional learning (SEL), serves a majority of under-resourced youth, and would benefit from funding that will bring ThinkGive to your students, at no cost?

“ThinkGive is a revolutionary SEL program that empowers students to immaterially gift kindness. It strengthens their connections to each other and to their communities.”
