Benefits to Schools

  • TKC Programs are aligned with select goals of the Illinois Social Emotional Learning Standards and developed to cultivate the values of service while supporting student achievement in social and emotional learning.
  • TKC projects are supported by a curriculum of discussion guides and materials to teach about volunteerism and make the service experience even more meaningful for students.
  • TKC is able to pass along some materials at cost thanks to our generous donors. Schools are asked to pay a subsidized fee to cover the cost of additional program materials and administration.
