Hero and Project Description: 

The team’s innovative teaching idea, “Diversity & Empathy Mindset,” focuses on teaching students to accept diversity in today’s society. With the Voya grant, the team will provide the students at Washington Elementary with the relevant books and technology that are necessary to address diversity and empathy issues and solutions. Using the power of words to increase awareness, specially designed lessons and activities centered on relevant diversity and empathy building will be taught based on a selection from the books. The team hopes that by building a diversified and empathetic mindset through literacy, students will be able to remove societal barriers and build relationships with all individuals, no matter their background.
