Raising standards across the curriculum by stimulating children’s imaginations, developing empathy and providing opportunities for critical thinking and problem solving.

  • Through Go-Givers, I see lots of examples of amazing opportunity for maths, science, English reading, writing and managing speech, where historical understanding can link with geographical understanding to show children the way the world works. Maths and English are important, but they’re important to a purpose. And if you can think of a purpose that’s more important than improving our global, national and local community, I’d be struggling to beat you.

  • This is exactly what we should be encouraging at this time; a greater awareness of young people of what’s going on around the world, or on their doorstep, and, critically, connecting them with their chance to make a difference.

  • Engaging characters, interactive activities, stimulating lesson plans that deal with REAL issues that concern the pupils, in-depth opportunities combined with stimulating, thought-provoking snippets. Each of the downloadable lessons can be taken by a teacher and adapted to suit their particular needs.  A dedicated team of genuine enthusiasts have put together a superb package for schools.

  • In a society where children are constantly measured by their academic achievement we need to be reminded that character qualities such as empathy, compassion and fair-mindedness are of equal importance in the wider world. We fully support the work that Go-Givers undertakes in order to promote these most important qualities in the developing child.

  • As a Co-Founder of Step up to Serve I believe that building a better society requires us all to support young people, especially those at primary school, to take practical action in the service of others.  The Go-Givers programme and the social action project, the Make a Difference Challenge does exactly this.

    Dame Julia Cleverdon, Co-founder and Trustee, Step Up To Serve

  • We want our young people to grow up with an understanding of the very complicated issues that surround them. With Go-Givers this sort of understanding comes allied with a sense of strength and purpose and belonging. Learning more about the wider world in the school setting - safely, in the company of friends, with support and with skilled mediation - has never been more important.
