Corporate Partnerships

Corporate partners ensure that students learn how the past informs our world today, and how young people can use their civic agency to build a more just future.

Why Companies Choose Facing History and Ourselves

Facing History’s scale, infrastructure, and impact enable us to drive educational change at the local, national, and international levels. We support teachers in developing the next generation of caring, informed, civically engaged leaders, while providing compelling community and equity-building resources to companies and their employees.

We are Facing History

Your partnership is a critical investment in empowering the next generation and demonstrates a meaningful commitment to a more equitable future.

Locally Rooted, Nationally Connected

We are a powerful way for companies to have a deep impact on building equitable learning spaces and civic engagement in their local communities and on a national scale.

Breadth and Depth

Our growing network is made up of hundreds of thousands of educators in all 50 US states and 134 countries around the world. Our educators use a range of deeply focused resources that cover topics from Holocaust and Human Behavior to Teaching for Equity and Justice.

Driving Systems Change

An extensive body of research shows the effectiveness of our teachers in the classroom, where they nurture empathy, critical thinking, and civic agency in generations of young people.

Experience & Expertise

We have decades of experience building partnerships that positively impact students and meet companies’ needs. Our resources are developed by scholars and practitioners with expertise in the fields of history, civics, English Language Arts, education, and social-emotional learning.

We believe, as Facing History does, that civic education must confront bias and develop a sense of the common good. We support equipping teachers with the tools to lead fact-based, responsible discussions, and to inspire students to recognize the power and importance of their civic participation.
— Ingrid Tolentino, CEO, MetLife Legal Plans
