Building a more just and equitable future calls on each of us to understand ourselves and our choices. Join our global learning community and help make that future a reality.

Experience Facing History

Facing History classrooms are transformative settings, where young people strengthen their analytical skills and examine their and others’ lived experiences. And, we know that when they study choices of the past, students are inspired to make informed and compassionate decisions today.

People make choices. Choices make history.
“I’ve witnessed firsthand the impact of Facing History on teachers and students. I was especially blown away by the inspiring young people who were able to contextualize history and connect it to the choices we make today.”
