Get Students Involved in Service
Getting students involved at a young age can help them continue to see the world in a caring way.
We would love to get students engaged in small projects by having our storytellers share at their schools or classrooms.
Our staff or volunteers would love to visit your school and discuss civic engagement and responsibility, inequality, development, sustainability, the impact of humanitarian service, and the work done by A Better World around the globe. We can tailor the visit for elementary, middle, or high school, as well as university age. We can present for specific classes, or for the whole school.
To book a visit, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teaching children to invest in helping others is an invaluable lesson. There are many opportunities to fundraise for development work around the world. Schools and/or classrooms can ‘adopt’ a project and either fully or partially fund it. Your students will be able to see the impact of their work.
If you’d like to start a fundraising campaign, please contact Jacqui at email@example.com.
Volunteer and Travel
For students age 18 and older, A Better World offers the opportunity to travel to various project sites in developing countries through the program Tomorrow’s EDGE. The EDGE program also offers students internship and training opportunities, support to attend conferences, and the guidance necessary to launch their own humanitarian projects.
To apply for Tomorrow’s EDGE, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
