This school year alone, Live It Learn It will serve approximately 1,800 students. That means 1,800 DC students will be introduced to new places, new ideas, and make new connections. It means that students will get out of their classrooms and, in many cases, explore these places for the very first time. Your tax-deductible year-end donation helps make that happen! https://liveitlearnit.org/one-time

These SMILES 🤩 We partnered up with Wilderness Inquiry and National Park Trust to bring Canoemobile to some stellar third-graders at Lawrence E. Boone Elementary! Not only did students hop in a canoe for the very first time, they made seed balls with Anacostia Watershed Society and learned all about amphibians inside the Aquatic Resources Education Center. An experience to remember!

Before their experience with Live It Learn It, many of our students had never been on a boat before. Or marveled at the paintings at the National Portrait Gallery, or set foot inside the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

“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?

“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 , 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

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.

📍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!).
