GIVE (Get Involved. Value Everyone) Funded by the Sherwood Foundation, since 2015 this grant provides the funding to develop a student-led , service-oriented program for three middle school after school programs. This student-directed program is facilitated by Courteous Kids/Life Launch staff to help students achieve their service goals and help build self-esteem and develop a sense of community and what that involves. Over the course of eight week sessions, students follow a curriculum which teaches what a community is, their role within a community, how to collaboratively choose a service project and then work collectively to assist that organization. This program helps students learn how to achieve goals, create a better sense of self worth and gain a deeper understanding of their community.
