Year 9 First Give: For causes that are close to our hearts
First Give is a philanthropy education programme that develops the professional skills of students and ignites their social conscience. It engages them in their communities and develops more employable and well-rounded individuals.
First Give provides an interactive and fully-resourced scheme of work delivered across an entire secondary school year group. After researching and visiting charities, students take part in a public-speaking competition to advocate and win grants for their charities in a school final.
The programme sees a combination of in-class learning and active community engagement which inspires a lifelong commitment to charity among young people.
Here are the highlights from our final presentations and awards ceremony.
