Project Heart for Elementary

How does Project Heart work?

Teachers facilitate learning of philanthropy by introducing the language of giving back and meeting needs we observe around us. Project Heart equips teachers and students with the framework and tools to invite community members into the classroom and then send your gifts out to the world. The series of nine lessons culminates in a final service project devoted to celebrating accomplishments and making connections for the future.

How do I use Project Heart?

Implementing Project Heart in the elementary classroom is easy! When you’ve got a flexible block of time for at least 30 minutes once a week, students will be masters of service learning in as little as 10 weeks. If you meet 2-3 times a week or are in an after school club setting, young philanthropists can make an impact in as quick as 4-6 weeks. Teachers and youth program providers who implement Project Heart with a group or a class tend to embody the qualities quickly, developing an empathy advantage. We see students are more aware of others’ needs around them and more willing to use their time and talents to solve problems with a little more kindness than before.
