Moral Courage ED™ has created a suite of offerings for individual teachers, cohorts of students, school communities (including parents), and entire educational districts.
After taking the online course, educators will be eligible to enroll in “Moral Courage College.” This is our advanced program to become certified as a Moral Courage Mentor. Candidates will help a task force of students address a divisive issue within the school. The effort will culminate in a school-wide event that showcases how different points of view can be heard and truly inclusive solutions crafted.
Teachers who demonstrate such mentorship will earn their Moral Courage Mentor certificate from Oxford University’s Initiative for Global Ethics and Human Rights, the program in which Irshad Manji teaches. Through resources that Moral Courage ED provides, certified Mentors can also receive continuing education. And through events that we host, they’ll be invited to network at the local, national, and global levels.
“Moral Courage College been transformational for our school culture. It’s one thing to talk about social justice. But when you’re empowering students, faculty, and staff to courageously address disagreement and discord, that’s the real work.”
– Raquel Majeski, candidate for Mentor certification, Lawrence Academy
