Educators Give Back
We all know that good teachers make a difference in the classroom, and we’re hoping to build on that by making a difference outside of the classroom as well!
So, we’re proud to announce that we will be launching our new initiative, “Educators Give Back,” on June 1st!
With Educators Give Back, we are committing proceeds from sales of our courses to causes that we believe in, in order to help those in need, in whatever capacity that may be.
We feel it is our duty as educators to lend a helping hand where we can, and so we will continue to work with organizations in our community and give back throughout the year.
As June is PRIDE month in many major cities around the country, we thought it only made sense to pair our inaugural Educators Give Back initiative with an organization that works with LGBTQ youth.
We want to thank you all for being a part of our growth and success, and let you know that we appreciate your support in our efforts to give back!
About the GLSEN Organization:
The GLSEN organization GLSEN (pronounced "glisten") was founded in 1990 by a small, but dedicated group of teachers in Massachusetts who came together to improve an education system that too frequently allows its lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) students to be bullied, discriminated against, or fall through the cracks.
Over 25 years later, that small group has grown into the leading national education organization focused on ensuring safe and affirming schools for LGBTQ students.
We face a pervasive problem with a set of new challenges. 8 out of 10 LGBT students are still harassed at school each year because of who they are.
We are working to change that.
