Resources for After-School Activities

We support all students receiving a balanced educational experience and promote civic engagement to help ensure they are all prepared to participate in our nation’s democracy, economy and workforce. Americans All is a nonprofit community-outreach program that specifically benefits non-academic school activities* and small businesses/service providers by using a unique storytelling tool and a turnkey revenue generator. Even though Americans All is no longer active in the Social Studies, English-Language-Arts, or any curriculum arenas, members can still access, for their clubs, our online K–12 nonpolitical supplemental classroom resources presented in multiple perspectives, which were sold to more than 2,000 schools and libraries nationwide.

These resources reflect the importance of diversity in our society. Information includes ethnic and cultural texts, period-specific photographs and posters and a music publication. Our foundation invests more than 80 percent of its membership fees in our Social Legacy Network and business partner subscriptions in strengthening non-academic activities. To simplify school registration, our contact database includes information on most of our nation’s public and private schools, and each is assigned an identification number. All schools need to do is designate a point of contact. Schools, students and students’ families staff and alumni participate in  Americans All at no cost and receive a free, 3-month trial to our Social Legacy Network.

Americans All members can join the program’s Social Legacy Network for only $4 per month. As a thank-you from the People of America Foundation for support of of its mission, the first three months of that trial membership are free! One of the major benefits of the network is that members can receive discounts on goods and services from our Business Legacy Partners.

*Non-academic activities include, but are not limited to, extra-curricular activities such as sports, performing arts, volunteerism, student government, and clubs that focus on topics such as academics, vocational and professional, service, arts and crafts, mechanical shops, hobbies,  publications/media, languages, religion, and so on. They also include events like excursions and social outreach programs, to name a few. These activities provide a channel for reinforcing the lessons learned in the classroom, offering students the opportunity to apply academic skills in a real-world context, and thus help contribute to a well-rounded education. Our storytelling tool can be quite useful in many of these areas.

Contact information on our members is not shared or published.

Resources
 

Ancestors of all Americans came here from diverse locations, so we all have immigrant roots. These experiences can be shared through
legacy stories.Using storytelling to communicate about ethnicity and culture broadens understanding, increases tolerance and heightens acceptance. Legacy stories also contribute to learning about our nation's diverse history.

Photographs
 

Authentic, period-specific photographs illustrate times and circumstances to visually help students learning. These visuals can be a powerful catalyst for further study.

Simulations
 

Simulations deepen students’ understanding of a subject and stimulate their critical- and creative-thinking skills. These hands-on learning events prompt students to respond, enact roles and consider the consequences of their actions and decisions. This model can also involve community members in their implementation.

Lesson Plans
 

Music can be a valuable learning devise and these songs can stimulate further study and an easy way to outreach into the community for additional cultural and period-specific songs.
