Impacting Kids One Mile at a Time
Why we need your help
Youth mental health has deteriorated nationwide, and this crisis is disproportionately affecting under-resourced youth. In May 2023, the Surgeon General declared loneliness, isolation, and lack of connection a new public health epidemic in the United States.
ThinkGive promotes emotional well-being in K-8 youth. Our social and emotional learning (SEL) programs empower them to put kindness, empathy, and inclusion into action to connect with and positively impact themselves, others, and their communities. Students overwhelmingly report strong increases in feelings of connection, belonging, self-esteem, and empowerment.
One of our top strategic priorities is to expand access to our programming so that every student can access the SEL needed to develop their whole selves and promote emotional well-being. Our Every Child Scholarship initiative has brought ThinkGive to 1,750 under-resourced youth at 38 schools and organizations this school year, who otherwise often don’t have access to programs like ours. Our goal in 2023-2024 is to engage 2,500 students at 53 scholarship sites.
