How Does Your Donation Impact Michigan Teachers and Students?

Every summer, two Michigan TOLI graduates work together with TOLI staff to provide a week-long workshop for local teachers. The seminar leaders have titled the seminar Studying, Learning, and Teaching: Critical Lessons of Holocaust Education.

The seminar is designed specifically for teachers who want to deepen their content knowledge of the Holocaust and awareness of best practices in Holocaust education, while also working to help their schools meet the requirements of 2016 legislation that mandates genocide education in Michigan schools. Participants will experience the seminar as both students and teachers of the Holocaust and genocide. Using the professional development model of The Olga Lengyel Institute (TOLI), they will master multiple strategies and acquire resources for classroom use, while also benefiting from the expertise of scholars in the field and speakers from esteemed partner organizations. Thanks to TOLI sponsorship and a partnership with the Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus, the seminar is a residential experience, enriched by the vast archival and historical resources of the Center.

Your donation will help send one additional teacher to this critical training.  Michigan needs this training. The world needs this training. 

Invest in Michigan. Invest in TOLI.
