Building a Foundation for Lifelong Giving
Between the pandemic, political divisions, and deep injustices facing our country – we need everyone, including children, to be exercising their philanthropic potential. Children (especially 8 years old and up) are uniquely equipped to give of themselves for the good of humanity because they are empathetic, fluid thinkers, and increasingly aware of injustices around them. How do we provide kids with a foundation for using their brains, voices, ears, and resources to make life more fair for others? How do we help kids see themselves as philanthropists.....just as easily as they see themselves as artists, readers, or athletes?
This professional development session will cover:
- Our current narratives around the role of children and service.
- A new framework for engaging kids in service, giving, and philanthropic efforts.
- Tools for nurturing a philanthropic disposition in all children, one based on empathy, humility, and impact.
