The Empathy Project: A Fellowship from Empatico and Participate (Sponsored)

Do you want to positively impact the world through kindness and participation?

You are an educator who understands how inter-cultural connections with classrooms around the world spark empathy, perspective-building, and curiosity in your students.

You’re not alone!

We are pleased to announce The Empathy Project: A Fellowship from Participate and Empatico. If you are a teacher of 7-11 year old students and want to be a part of this pioneering cohort of compassionate, connected educators from all over the world, apply HERE. The fellowship is free to educators.

Together through our new Fellowship - The Empathy Project - we are forming a small group of thoughtful, committed educators who empower learners to engage with the world around them.

  • Collaborative, project-based learning experiences to further develop global and digital competencies for you and your students
  • Blended learning: discussions, resources, inquiry-based learning, participation in at least two virtual connections with partner classes
  • Pathways to leadership opportunities for future cohorts
  • Timeline: September - December 2018

Upon completion of the Fellowship, graduates will be awarded digital badges that showcase and recognize professional learning and accomplishments, that, in coordination with schools or districts, can be converted into professional development credits.

Apply for The Empathy Project now and Be the Change the world is waiting for.
