What We Teach
In addition to events, Live for the Cause achieves its mission through education. Live for the Cause representatives give lectures to high school students at public and private high schools in and around Montreal. The goal of these lectures is to educate youth on the important and rewarding aspects of becoming involved in philanthropy. The students are encouraged to become engaged in giving back to their local community, in whatever way they can. The lecture highlights the unique aspects of the foundation and showcases past events in order to demonstrate that they too capable of hosting events of this type.
The presentations include a hands-on workshop, where students are asked to brainstorm ideas for their own community event using Live for the Cause’s community events 3-step formula. As part of this activity, students are required to pair an activity with a type of donation, and choose a meaningful cause as the beneficiary. This has fostered innovative forward thinking, and has been very successful at engaging and empowering the students.
