My Time, Talents and Treasures: Helping Youth Examine How They Spend Their Own Resources

Charities Review Council of Minnesota

This lesson is designed to help students recognize and analyze how they are philanthropists -- by giving their time, talent and treasure for the common good. After determining how they currently use these resources, students set goals for additional giving they wish to do and evaluate their progress. Through the lesson and action plan, students analyze the traits of philanthropists and then their own change attitudes and behaviors to begin being -- or become a better -- philanthropist. This lesson helps students achieve Minnesota state graduation standards in social studies and language arts.
