EDUCATION PROGRAM

THE VOICE OF WITNESS EDUCATION PROGRAM

The Voice of Witness Education Program brings the human rights narratives and issues portrayed in the VOW book series into the curricula of schools and universities throughout the U.S. Our work with students is rooted in the belief that long term, positive change can only be achieved if we foster empathy, inquiry, and critical thinking in young people—our next generation of teachers, leaders, and history-makers.

We serve more than 20,000 people annually, providing curricular support in human rights education and empathy based learning. We teach our ethics-driven storytelling to a broad range of advocates for human rights and dignity, including educators, writers, journalists, filmmakers, attorneys, and medical doctors.

The Voice of Witness Education Program includes a specialized focus on English Language Learners (ELL) and students from the impacted communities of our book series. Our educational resources support underserved populations in developing the skills needed to become empowered members of their communities.
