Gratitude, Empathy & Philanthropy


Children who have a mastery of both gratitude and empathy are not just more pleasant to be around – studies have shown that they tend to be both happier and more successful as well. But how do you foster gratitude and empathy in your young learner?

One way is by encouraging their involvement in organized philanthropy and volunteer activities. The Youth Philanthropy movement is catching fire in communities across the country, including the Gallatin Valley, and provides more than material for college applications. To learn more about raising a philanthropist - and a more empathic and grateful young adult, join us at the next Parent University session on September 26th. Details below”

The definition of a philanthropist is a “person who seeks to promote the welfare of others”. In this interactive session, parents will have a chance to explore the life skills they hope their children will acquire and how to best support their children as they become caring, contributing members of our community.
