“Live It Learn It takes you outside your neighborhood and exposes you to a brand new world...”

Time and time again, we see creativity shine when our students see themselves in their learning. From studying Kehinde Wiley's art at the National Portrait Gallery to exploring the differences in sculpture along the National Mall, our students discover their own talents in our lessons.

We live in an incredible city with amazing resources, and your support ensures that all students, regardless of income level or zip code, have access to these places. In order to reach our end-of-year goal of $150,000, we need many more of our friends and donors to step up and make a donation today. bit.ly/LILIEOY

"Are you saying that Martin Luther King, Jr. stood right here?! I can't believe I'm standing in the same spot! That is soooo cool." — 5th grader

Live It Learn It lessons are unique in that they go in-depth on topics that are relevant to our students and to their worlds. 🌎

We believe that students in DC’s Title I schools should have the opportunity to engage with history, art, and culture, so we are asking for YOUR support in making that possible. Will you join us in encouraging more voices to be heard?

Make your gift today! bit.ly/LILIEOY

“I’ve never had this experience before! Exploring new things is so great.” — 3rd grader

After a long school year of virtual learning, our students were more than ready to get out and experience their city first-hand. We have worked with over 800 students since the beginning of this school year, providing experiential learning through many avenues.

Would you consider making an end-of-year contribution for even more experiences to take place? We’d be so grateful!

12/01/2021

We are so filled with gratitude for each and every person who donated on #GivingTuesday, as well as for all those who support our work in myriad ways. We fell short of our goal but raised $10,527 from 84 donors. Thank you!

You can still donate through Friday at midnight. http://bit.ly/GivTue21

11/30/2021

We're still out here, folks! And we'd love for you to join us!

Did you know that 8 out of 10 students have never been to the places we take them?! And that 9 out of 10 say they'd love to visit again! We build bridges between DC students and their amazing city and YOU can play a part in making that possible for even more students.

Maybe you’ve been thinking about donating all day but haven’t quite gotten around to it. Maybe you’ve been on the fence about whether or not you should donate. Well, good news is that there's still time! Your gift will make a huge impact on students and teachers.

We've got ourselves a MATCH!!! An extremely generous supporter has offered a $1000 match, which means that if you donate now, your donation will be DOUBLED! That’s right, each and every dollar, up to $1000, will be matched.

So, please, before that afternoon stupor hits, make a donation! We thank you, and DC students thank you! https://www.givelocaltogether.org/liveitlearnit

11/30/2021

And we're off!

Giving Tuesday starts NOW and we are so excited! It's a day of giving, generosity, and standing together. No matter when or how much you donate, you are making a difference for DC students and for our communities, as shown with the quote below.

"I learned that young people can do amazing things to help the world." -5th grader from Aiton Elementary School.

Let's make this realization possible for even more students, shall we?! Unleash your generosity here: https://www.givelocaltogether.org/liveitlearnit

📍Lincoln Memorial & Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial

We kicked off in-person programming with the awesome students of Aiton Elementary School. They learned how kids, throughout history and today, have been important in pushing for social change to make the world a better place. From studying the Children's March in Birmingham, AL to the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, these young activists stepped back in time to 1963 as journalists to interview participants in the March and create their own activist signs (swipe to the end!).

They're here! We've heard reports of cicadas making their first appearances around DC today. Luckily, Ms. Harrod's students are ready and armed with knowledge. We knew we had made a great choice when we chose Hope Harrod for our Distinguished Educator award, but the video below clinches it.

📣 Attention DCPS Principals, Teachers, and Friends! ⁣

Good news — the ELF application deadline has been extended to May 21! So if you were feeling the pressure to apply, there’s still time. The Fellowship is a wonderful opportunity to learn and collaborate alongside fellow educators in areas focused on racial equity, experiential learning, and trauma-sensitive classrooms.

Feel free to nominate a DCPS teacher you think would be interested in participating! Did we mention a $500 stipend is included?! 🤑⁣

Does Glenn Close know more about go-go music than you?! We think NOT!

This year's Oscars ceremony paid tribute to DC's legacy of go-go music with Glenn Close putting on quite the show! Close gave shout-outs to E.U., Sugar Bear, and the Backyard Band — all of whom were established in our city. While we can neither confirm nor deny that it was scripted (it was absolutely scripted), we CANNOT deny the impact of go-go music in Washington, DC.

Whether you already know quite a lot or just a little about the roots of go-go, there’s always more to learn and that’s why we think you’ll love taking part in our virtual unit, Hear Art, See Music, at our Spring Soirée (www.liveitlearnit.org/springsoiree). Register today!

We promise you will not be required to do "Da Butt" when attending. 🙂
