More than four million Central Americans reside in the United States today, yet the lack of resources on Central American heritage in most schools make the rich history and literature of the region invisible.

In the last two years, we’ve seen a massive increase in demand for our resources. We’ve also seen a widespread right-wing backlash, as GOP lawmakers ban teaching the truth.

The demand for our anti-racist, social justice resources has increased dramatically. Educators are turning to Teaching for Change for our carefully curated reading lists, virtual workshops, and lessons to help students learn about history beyond the textbook heroes and holidays, rethink the world around them, and see themselves as agents of change. Please give today to help students envision and build the future they deserve.
Teaching for Change depends on the support of committed individuals to serve as interns/fellows or volunteers throughout the year. In exchange for their time and expertise, we provide interns/fellows and volunteers with the chance to make a meaningful contribution to social justice education, hands-on experience, and opportunities to attend local and national forums on education.
