Teens for Tolerance and Understanding

My students need transportation for 4 buses to the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. My students deserve the same supplies and technology as other school districts.

My students are eager to learn about the world around them.

Many of my students have no access to computers or the internet at home. Our school district is in a rural area where our kids ride the bus to school. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. My students are amazing in their own right. I cannot wait to see what my amazing students will grow up to be. I know that I am only one pebble in a huge pond for them. It is this one pebble that wants them to experience everything they can while they are in my classroom.

My Project

Have you watched the news recently? Our news is filled with hate and anger. Our students see this in their daily life. They need a better understanding of tolerance. We are taking them to the Museum of Tolerance to give them the tools they need, in order to, understand the world around them.

Our students will have a better understanding of the dynamics of human bias, exclusion and oppression.

They will have a chance to look at a history of social and political injustice. They will gain a greater understanding of the Holocaust.

Our students will be better able to understand how studying the past, can help us understand the future. Understanding of the future so we do not repeat the same mistakes.
