Better World Day

Save the Date: This year's Better World Day is May 3rd, 2019!

Last year on May 4th, tens of thousands of EL Education students and teachers in more than 100 schools took civic action to make the world a safer, stronger, and more just place locally and globally. Take a look back at some of the ways students put their learning to work for a better world.

Social Media for Social Justice

Use the hashtag #BetterWorldDay before, during, and after the event when posting about your impact on any social media channel for a chance to be highlighted on our page. Show support for our citizen scholars by sharing and commenting on their posts.


More than 50,000 students, educators, and community members, and counting! These citizens are stepping up to serve their communities. With so many involved in one day of service, imagine the impact 1,000,000 EL students have had every day throughout 25 years of "getting smart to do good."
