Moral Courage ED™ has created a suite of offerings for individual teachers, cohorts of students, school communities (including parents), and entire educational districts.

Mentor Certification

Welcome to the pinnacle of our offerings! This program is advanced training to become a certified Moral Courage Mentor. As a Mentor-candidate, you’ll study with Irshad and the Moral Courage team in a hybrid format.

Over five months, you’ll attend LIVE weekly classes via Zoom. Mid-way through training, you’ll participate in an in-person “bootcamp” to meet fellow aspiring Mentors, finesse your Moral Courage skills and boost your confidence to teach those skills to younger people.

Later, you’ll embark on a capstone project in which you’ll apply the advanced teachings to our real and messy world. Upon completing the capstone, you’ll graduate with your certificate, extending your capacity to teach Moral Courage not only in the classroom, but also in communities beyond.

Through opportunities that the Moral Courage team creates, certified Mentors will also choose options for continuing education. And through events that we host, you’ll network at the local, national, and global levels, bringing the best practices of Moral Courage Mentorship back to your schools and communities.This program is administered through our nonprofit, the Moral Courage Project, where you can get more specifics:


Watch Irshad explain why the world needs Moral Courage Mentors

“Moral Courage mentorship 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
