The Learning Experience Now Teaching Philanthropy to Students
The TLE Team
Children learn how to give back to their community through TLE’s recently introduced philanthropy curriculum. Students are introduced to the ideas of charity, giving and hope with targeted lessons up to three times a week. Lessons are taught through songs and monthly charity projects to give the children the chance to directly impact their community by donating to charities.
