GiveThx is Committed to Equity and Inclusion

GiveThx is built on the values of inclusion and equity. It was created with and for educators and students from low-income, high-trauma urban communities in California.

Our design teams included youth who identify as people of color, English Language Learners, people with special needs, LGBTQ+, and other non-mainstream identities.

Designing with equity requires being responsive to youth needs and preferences and holding their sense of safety at the center.

Our collaborative process showed that GiveThx participation frequency and quality increased significantly for all students, especially those who were more marginalized.

GiveThx mission is to create school communities where all students feel a strong sense of belonging, and to use technology to break social barriers and build healthier connections.

Our History

GiveThx was developed by Mike Fauteux in a high school math classroom as a set of activities to help students who were significantly behind and struggling to catch up. After engaging in early GiveThx practices, those students reported feeling happier, developing stronger relationships with their peers and teachers, and building a deeper sense of self.

It became clear that strengthening social emotional skills through gratitude was an important way to improve student belonging and build a healthier classroom and school culture. And this led to better academic outcomes and more satisfaction with their school community. 

Mike partnered with co-founders Amara Humphry and Javier Perez to bring these early prototypes to life through the GiveThx app. They have been working ever since to create easy, flexible, and equitable ways to integrate social emotional skill-building into schools through technology.
