FACILITATOR /
DIGITAL EMPOWERMENT WORKSHOP

We invite candidates to apply to be a facilitator for a Museum of Tolerance interactive classroom workshop, Combat Hate, to grades 6th – 12th in schools in New York City. Museum of Tolerance (MOT) is continuing to offer a dynamic, classroom-based workshop that engages students in critical thinking for decoding and rejecting online hate. This is an online safety curriculum aligned with ISTE digital citizenship standards and based on foundational media literacy skills. Using real life examples compiled by the Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC)’s Research Department, students are challenged to interpret the hateful messages, understand their impact, and commit to action steps.

Candidates should have experience with at least 3 of the following:

  • Dialogue Facilitation skills
  • Working with middle/high-school age students
  • Comfort and experience as a social media user
  • Knowledge of how the internet is used to spread hateful ideologies, and how this impacts our communities in the USA.

Candidates are required to travel to school sites in New York City. Experience presenting virtual content (via Zoom or other) is desirable, as some presentations will be online rather than in-person.
