Schools: giving just got more rewarding!
Giving Nation is our national schools programme of giving. New online resources make it even more engaging than before.
With Giving Nation, students choose an issue that matters to them and do something about it.
They are allowed to thrive as social entrepreneurs, fundraisers, campaigners and volunteers. And all within a solid educational framework.
We still give you cash to start a social enterprise, free training and teacher support.
But now we also help you grow your profile.
Our new G-Blog tool puts you in control. Teachers and students can plan, monitor and promote your project. You can also chat to other projects, sharing advice and swapping stories.
It's properly educational too. Our brand new website is launched today and has plenty of lesson plans, both for schools and for alternative education settings.
The lessons are mapped to a range of curriculum subjects. Citizenship and PSHE are important to us, of course, but these resources also bring benefits right accross the curriculum.
Giving Nation is for 11-16 year olds (key stages 3 and 4) in secondary schools and alternative education settings.
The alternative settings include pupil referral units (PRUs), special schools, special educational needs or behavioral difficulties (SEN BD) and young offender institutions (YOIs).
Think it sounds good?
You are not alone. Over the last four years Giving Nation projects have been run by 163,000 young people in over 3,700 school classes.
