Empowering young people; igniting a spark of social conscience. The First Give programme inspires and empowers young people to take action to make a positive change in society.
We run a fully-resourced secondary school programme that engages a whole year group in social action.
The First Give Programme is delivered through a fully resourced scheme of work that is interactive and student-led. Over eight lessons, the Programme encourages an entire year group of students to identify social issues in their area and engage with local charities that address them. The stufdents will then have the opportunity to compete for £1,000 of grant money. Teams will do this by advocating for their charity in a school competition.
The scheme of work promotes many aspects of Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural education within secondary schools. It fits easily into a variety of different subject areas such as Citizenship, PSHE, RE and English.
First Give provides all the lesson plans and resources including PowerPoints, hard copy Student Coursebooks as well as £1,000 grant money for each school to award to the charity of the winning class. In addition to this, First Give will also deliver an Assembly, Presentation Skills Workshop and host the School Final in order to further engage and inspire students.
