Obviously, we are big proponents of Generosity and Philanthropy Education. We believe that Service Learning can be deeply rooted to curriculum and a community of kindness in your classroom. It turns out, we are not the only ones. There are many fabulous resources out there on Generosity Education. We’ve begun to keep a list helpful website that you might enjoy perusing and might help you to deepen your understanding of the importance of service learning in your classroom. Check back here now and again, as we will be updating this list whenever we find great resources!
