Area Teachers Complete Yearlong Embracing Our Differences' Education Ambassador Initiative to Create More Inclusive School Cultures

Business

Twenty-five teachers from 20 Sarasota and Manatee schools engaged in a yearlong Education Ambassadors initiative coordinated by Embracing Our Differences. According to Ben Jewell-Plocher, EOD’s education director, the program was designed “to empower teachers and school staff to carry messages of diversity, inclusion, respect and integrity into their schools in innovative ways.” Each teacher worked with their students to create original, EOD-inspired projects centered on community-building activities that inspired cooperation, communication, and empathy. The teachers received funding towards their EOD-inspired projects and a $500 stipend at the end of the project. The initiative was funded by Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation.
