To celebrate and explore the potential of student leadership, Teach For All is collecting and sharing stories from across the network and around the globe. When students LEAD, we all LEARN.


There are many ways to foster student leadership. Whether you're just getting started or already have experience working with student leaders, we recommend the resources below for inspiration. If there are additional resources that you have found helpful, please contact us and let us know.

Maya “Find Your Light” Curriculum

This 10-lesson curriculum with accompanying resources was developed by Teach For India to help students build awareness of themselves and their communities and explore the three values of courage, compassion, and wisdom. Each lesson can be customized according to the needs of specific classes or learning environments.

Design For Change

The Design For Change process equips children with the tools to be aware of the world around them, believe that they play a role in shaping that world, and take action toward a more desirable, sustainable future. The simple yet powerful four-step framework of Feel-Imagine-Do-Share can be easily adapted to any setting. 

Peace First Curriculum

Peace First's resources teach students how to act peacefully, inspires and enables teachers to teach peacemaking skills, and encourages all of us to see and celebrate the role that young peacemakers have in changing their own lives, their schools, communities, and the world at large. The Digital Activity Center is home to a peace curriculum for pre-kindergarten through 5th grade, over 100 theme-based activities and cooperative games, as well as toolkits, tipsheets, and other resources to support work with young people in and out of the classroom.
