New York

Since 1993, our New York office has served educators and students in schools throughout the New York City metropolitan area.

In-depth Program Grant

Our grants are for educators and administrators who want to engage students, improve school culture, and support literacy skills.

With nearly three decades of local experience, Facing History helps New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut schools transform their culture and climate through curriculum development, school-wide programming, and whole-staff engagement.


Our Impact


There are over 2500 schools in the New York metropolitan area with Facing History trained educators.


We have supported over 42,000 area educators with Facing History guidance and resources.

The Facing History curriculum instilled in me a different way to think, a different way to be. It led me to ask questions about my own heritage and to further appreciate my family’s challenges and triumphs.  
— Emily Cubilete, Facing History alum
