For over forty years,  our New England office has offered educators resources, professional development, and follow-up support on a range of topics including racism, antisemitism, bullying, immigration, and other current histories. 

We have worked system-wide with the Boston Public Schools for several decades, and have created curriculum resources in History and Social Studies. 

We work with many systems in New England offering school-wide support addressing issues of school culture and social/emotional learning.
