Tools for Tolerance® for Educators has funding for pre-K-12 public and private school educators, student teachers, teacher candidates, and the staff of California's schools, school districts, and educator organizations. If you are involved with students or teachers in California – we want you to register!
The MOT recognizes that some educators are unable to attend our programs in person. We have developed a robust virtual training program. Please reach out to program staff for more details on scheduling a custom virtual program or read about our virtual Open Enrollment programs here.
Group Programs are customized for the goals and needs of each group, but some common elements include:
Open Enrollment Institutes:
These programs are designed for individual registrants and offered in collaboration with our various partners. Please refer here to view the themes and topics of Institutes.
For All Programs: The grant covers the cost of tuition, select educational resource materials, water, coffee, snacks, and lunch. The grant supports some of the travel expenses for non-local participants who are located beyond a 50-mile radius.
Substitute coverage or reimbursement is not provided. Mileage reimbursement for drivers is not provided.
The minimum number of participants required for a customized group program is 30. If you have fewer than 30, please join with neighboring districts or inquire about our Open Enrollment Institutes.
One- and two-day programs are offered year-round, Sunday through Friday, with the exception of certain holidays. Our grant period has a finite end date, and all programs must be completed by June 30, 2022.
One-day programs are scheduled for a minimum of 8 hours, usually between 8:30am - 5:00pm. Two-day programs are scheduled on consecutive days, usually mid-morning until 6:00pm on the first day; and a full 8 hours on the second day.
As soon as you can! Dates are filling up quickly at the Museum of Tolerance. Because of this, we recommend that you submit your registration form now. You will identify preferred dates and the type of program that you wish to reserve. You will receive an email confirming your program once we have reviewed your information.
Limited grant funds are available for non-locals participants who are located beyond 50 mile radius from the MOT. Subsidies are awarded on a case by case basis.
TRAVEL: Round trip air fare and/or ground transportation to and from LAX/Hotel and the MOT, OR a charter bus from your school location. For Open Enrollment participants, flight arrangements must be made more than a month before the program date.
ACCOMMODATION: One night's lodging for customized and Open Enrollment programs, at a hotel designated by the MOT. Be prepared to provide a credit card to secure your room reservation (the card will not be charged if you occupy the room) and when you check into the hotel for any personal incidental charges you incur during your stay.
Travel and accommodation must be arranged through a Museum of Tolerance designated agency. We will not reimburse for arrangements you make independently.
TO REGISTER: Check out the upcoming institutes here and fill out the registration form. Each registrant must fill out their own registration form. Once the institute has reached minimum attendance, you will receive an email from the Museum of Tolerance confirming your enrollment.
