At Live It Learn It we strive to provide experiences that students might not otherwise have. ⁣

For now, those experiences are virtual, but even within the confines of remote learning our students have kayaked on the Anacostia River and designed their own buildings inspired by architect Zaha Hadid. They’ve set up research stations in the North and South Poles to learn about animal adaptations. They’ve toured the National Portrait Gallery and created their own identity webs. ⁣

Our Experiential Learning Educators, like Kat, have taken students on these journeys, but it’s only possible because of donors like you. To make your tax-deductible gift, visit bit.ly/LILI_EOY! ⁣

For us, it’s all about the students.
I meannnn, how cute are they?!?! 😍✨⁣

The pandemic has been hard on everyone, and remote learning isn’t easy for anyone. Mounting evidence indicates that students of color and students in high poverty communities are losing the most academic ground. But with your help, we know that we can make a difference for our students.⁣

Consider making a tax-deductible, year-end gift to Live It Learn It today! bit.ly/LILI_EOY

Talk to any teacher and they’ll tell you that keeping students engaged during remote learning has been a challenge.
⁣⁣
But that’s exactly what we’ve made it our mission to do: create engaging, interactive experiences that get students excited to learn. We couldn’t do what we do without teachers like Mr. Freeman at Tubman Elementary School. And we couldn’t do it without you!

If you haven’t already, please make a year-end investment in our students and teachers: http://bit.ly/LILI_EOY

Yesterday, #GivingTuesday, was exactly what we hoped it would be. So many of our friends and supporters came together - more than 130 of you - and gave so generously. We raised over $15,000, which, to be honest, exceeded even our ambitious expectations. We cannot thank you enough or express how much that means to us. Yeah, we might be crying a little.

Support Live It Learn It

It's Giving Tuesday! No doubt you'll be getting a lot of requests from a lot organizations, and we hope that you'll consider donating to as many as you're able. After all, Giving Tuesday is a day for coming together as a community to support the things that matter to us. It's a day for generosity and giving.

In that spirit we hope that you'll consider a donation to Live It Learn It. COVID-19 has given us the opportunity to reimagine and rewrite many of our units to make them engaging, interactive, and challenging in the virtual space, all the while continuing our focus on diversity, identity, and critical thinking through an anti-racist lens.

Please visit our Catalogue for Philanthropy page to find out more and make a donation! https://bit.ly/GT_LILI #givingtuesday2020

It's no secret that not all children in Washington, DC have access to the same opportunities, and COVID-19 has only exacerbated these disparities.

Awesome budding partnership!  Thanks Molette Green for highlighting our partnership.

Before launching the workshop, the team would like to gauge the audience to assess the needs and availability of potential participants!

Attention, please! We are thrilled to introduce our brand new initiative, the LILI Honor Roll. The LILI Honor Roll is a small group of dedicated supporters who contribute to Live It Learn It on a monthly basis (yes, it’s small for now, but you can help us grow!) Joining the LILI Honor Roll is easy - you choose how much to contribute each month, when, and how you’d like to pay, and of course you can cancel at any time at all with no hassle. When you join the LILI Honor Roll you know that your contribution is going to support students in Washington DC’s Title I schools. The overwhelming income and opportunity disparity in DC makes it more important than ever that our students have access to high quality, academically robust virtual programming.

✨ Since our founding in September 2005, we have served 21,000+ DCPS students and partnered with over two dozen destinations in our nation’s capital. These hands-on experiences have allowed our students to use their own city as a classroom fostering a sense of self-efficacy, pride, and joy. We would not be here today without the support from our partners! From all of us to you, thank you!! 🎉 #LILI15anniversary

(3/3) “Learning is not the product of teaching. Learning is the product of the activity of the learners.” — John Holt

That’s the truth! We have loved teaching our students all year long, both in-person and virtually. We always enter DCPS classrooms smiling and leave feeling inspired. You know why? Because as much as we plan and prepare our hands-on curriculum, our students are the ones who teach us so much — their joy for learning is contagious! 💫 Happy last day of school to the DCPS community! See you next year 😎 #liveitlearnitdc

(2/3) ✨ Here’s to our 98 teachers, 15 principals, 21 partner destinations, and all the support staff and administration for helping us serve nearly 3,000 students this school year — THANK YOU! We’d also like to thank our donors, funders, and board members for continuing to support this critical work in DCPS! We couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you. May we continue to fight for a more equitable education system for our communities. #liveitlearnitdc #washingtondc #experientialeducation .

(1/3) And that’s a wrap! Today, we celebrate the end of another school year. We are SO proud of our students and all that they’ve accomplished amidst having to adapt to distance learning. Thank you to our partner teachers for welcoming us into your classrooms to deliver hands-on learning (even when it got a little messy 😉). We also want to thank our partner destinations who always teach with great enthusiasm throughout museums, parks, gardens, and rivers! ⭐️ #liveitlearnitdc

From the nine of us at Live It Learn It, we want to say THANK YOU for your generous gifts over these last two weeks. Along with others, we had to quickly shift our plans around and develop innovative ways to teach our students in a virtual space. Although it’s not the same as being in a classroom or at a museum, teaching children is what brings us great joy each day. Thank you for making this ongoing work possible. While we are still just short of our fundraising goal, we are hoping a few last-minute donations might put us over the top! Visit www.liveitlearnit.org/covid to make your gift today. #CheersLILI

Thank you!
