Teaching A Pay It Forward Mentality


--by SnowGoose, posted Apr 2, 2023
I teach leadership at a university and my goal is to get students to buy into a "pay it forward" attitude by which they will live their lives. My hope is that by showing compassion and love in the classroom that students will model these behaviours in their communities outside of the university. Today I planned the pay it forward lecture and I'm proposing a one-day pay it forward challenge on campus. Hopefully students get excited about it!

Inspiring students to follow suit is a sign of a very good teacher.

Your "Pay it forward" challenge on campus is simply beautiful. You never know, how many "Kind souls" it will produce.

I am sure, your lecture on Pay it Forward was well received. Congratulations.
