Join Holocaust Museum Houston’s Education Team for an empowering and inspiring teacher training!
About Engines of Change™:
By encouraging young leaders to recognize that hate, prejudice and apathy
continue to harm individuals and our society, this program encourages the next generation to care about and confront these perils. By fostering a community of upstanders on their campuses, schools help support the development of active citizenship in our democracy. The Ambassadors will improve their ability to analyze concerns that affect their city, state and the larger world on their campus through this program. The Engines of Change™
Program can be implemented in a variety of ways on your middle or high school campus as an extra-curricular club, during an advisory period or as a component of a special topics course.
Why Engines of Change™?
The EOC Student Ambassadors will be actively engaged in their own education and community, helping to lead discussions on several topics including:
- The Holocaust and Genocide
- Identity & Values
- Social Justice
- Civil Discourse
- Human Rights
- Active Citizenship
During this free training, educators will receive curriculum resources and lesson plans; learn tools for integrating and implementing the program at their campuses; and work with other educators in developing programming that will meet the needs of their students, schools and communities. Lunch will be provided for all participants at no cost.
