Regional Programs

The Regional Seminars brings TOLI’s model to teachers across the country. These five-day programs are designed to provide a collaborative and safe environment in which teachers can explore the difficult subject of the Holocaust and other genocides. While the Regional Seminars often include a focus on local issues, the overall goal is for teachers in all of the seminars to leave with strategies, materials, and ideas for use in their own classrooms. Our aim is for teachers to become advocates for social change and to return to their classrooms with action plans that will enable them and their students to have a positive impact on their communities.
