About

The Forgotten International has developed a classroom curriculum called Doing Good that is founded on the principles of gratitude, empathy, compassion, and proactive philanthropy. Long term, we hope that the curriculum will be implemented in classrooms throughout the United States and will give young people an empathetic perspective on the world. The ten lessons incorporated in the curriculum encourage students to think creatively and compassionately to develop real-world projects aimed at helping those struggling with poverty both locally and abroad.

In order to ensure the long-term success of Doing Good, we want to harness the talent of local volunteers to help roll out the curriculum in Bay Area schools. We need a cohort of knowledgeable and capable volunteers that will learn the curriculum and help implement it in classrooms. Following a one-day training course in San Francisco, each volunteer will bring the curriculum to a Bay Area school and work alongside a classroom educator to carry out the lesson plans. Each volunteer will visit their assigned class approximately ten times next semester.

You have been invited to participate as a volunteer in this curriculum and training course. We have not set a date for the training yet, but expect to hold it in early November (4th or the 5th). For the time being, we need to gauge your interest in this opportunity. If you would like to be a part of this exciting new curriculum, please send an email to info@theforgottenintl.org. Ideally, 12 or more volunteers will be needed to introduce Doing Good to the Bay Area starting in Spring 2017.

What does the program look like?

There will be 1-day training for volunteers and it will be for about 6 hours in San Francisco. We haven't picked a date for this training yet, but it will be sometime in early November. Post training, our volunteers will be assigned to a school classroom which they will visit about 10 days in a semester. Each of these classes will last for about an hour, so that means it will be about 10 hours a semester. Some classrooms or schools might require more time, depending on the students and Teacher. During the school visit, volunteers will be teaching the Doing Good curriculum in class along with a teacher, and assisting in learning activities, etc. If you feel comfortable speaking to a classroom and helping implement activities based on global awareness and compassion, you would be a great fit for our program.
