Custom Programs

An interactive, experiential program that helps educators fulfill their potential both as people and professionals.

The Museum of Tolerance is a partner to schools in advancing anti-bias education, inclusion, and equity through unique professional development programs. Participants are challenged to examine the Holocaust in both historic and contemporary contexts, to confront all forms of prejudice and discrimination, and to assume responsibility for positive change.

Our virtual PD programs for groups of 25 or more are designed based on the goals and needs of your group. Key features include:

  • Experiencing the Museum of Tolerance virtually as a social laboratory of human behavior
  • Hearing personal testimonies from witnesses to history
  • Engaging in facilitated dialogue with peers
  • Participating in online workshops customized to the group’s needs by expert consultants (choose a focus such as Promoting a Positive Campus Climate, Social &Emotional Learning, Common Core through a social justice lens, Cultural Proficiency, and much more)
  • Receiving valuable resource materials including a digital journal

Every program features interactive methods to promote self-reflection, critical thinking, and action planning.

Programs are offered in a minimum of 8 hours spread over several days in a given week of your choice, combining both synchronous and asynchronous learning.
