BENEFITING: BUILDING TOMORROW INC
Sit for Good is an innovative K-12 service-learning campaign that is used in schools as a way of teaching students about philanthropy, the educational inequalities in our world and sub-Saharan Africa.
Sponsored by Building Tomorrow (BT), the campaign provides curricular materials such as lesson plans, activities and discussion topics for use in the classroom. These are accompanied by an activity, the actual “Sit for Good”, where students give up their desks and other classroom resources for a day in order to experience, first-hand, some of the challenges that students just like them face as they struggle for something we all too often take for granted: an education. In most cases, classrooms also commit to raising funds to provide learning space for thousands of current and future students at BT academies.
