Educational Outreach

At the HHRC, we use the lessons of the Holocaust and human rights events past and present to help students learn, reflect and act to confront prejudice, intolerance and discrimination in their schools and communities. We propose to expand our direct educational programming in Greater Portland schools by hiring a southern Maine educator to work with teachers and schools to deliver quality Holocaust and human rights workshops tailored to their needs and connected to current events. We have demonstrated success; Demand for our programming from schools has more than doubled in the last four years. With over thirty years of experience in educational outreach to teachers and secondary school students, the HHRC has the credibility, expertise and longstanding relationships to deliver quality educational programming to students and teachers who are seeking to have critical conversations about human rights in the classroom. Given national current events and the dangerous rise in hate speech and discrimination in America, we anticipate demand to exceed capacity in the coming year. Supporting teachers in their efforts to teach students about human rights and inspire youth to act upon their moral responsibilities to combat prejudice and discrimination is more important than ever.
