The Giraffe Heroes Project needs your support for our K-12 curriculum, helping kids from kindergarten through high school build lives as courageous, compassionate citizens. In the process, they learn critical literacy and other academic and life skills.
By guiding kids through real-world experiences of participating actively in community service - starting in the schoolyard and extending out from there - Giraffe programs for kids instill values of service, engaged citizenship and leadership. In an age when so much is thrown at kids that's confusing and threatening, the Giraffe curriculum give them something to say Yes! to. The program is proactive and immediate: it teaches kids they can be valuable community leaders now. We've gotten hundreds of reactions like these from teachers:
The Giraffe Heroes curriculum has an impact like nothing else. It's not just something they've memorized; they are learning to live it. This is powerful, powerful stuff.
