Tools for Tolerance® For Educators
Customized Group Program

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. Set in the immersive, experiential learning environment of the Museum of Tolerance, 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. Every program features innovative methods to promote self-reflection, critical thinking, and action planning.

Group Programs are customized for the goals and needs of each group, but some common elements include:

  • Experiencing the Museum of Tolerance as a laboratory for human behavior
  • Hearing personal testimonies from witnesses to history
  • Engaging in facilitated discussions around issues that matter to you
  • Participating in workshops customized to the group’s needs by expert consultants (choose a focus, including promoting a positive campus climate, Common Core through a social justice lens, media literacy, cultural proficiency, and much more)
  • Taking home valuable resource materials

Programs are offered in 1 or 2-day formats. Lunch and materials are included. Travel and accommodation for groups travelling from outside of Los Angeles (50+ miles) are also provided as permitted by the grant.
