Our Program

Welcoming Schools, a project of the HRC Foundation, is a comprehensive approach to improving school climate in elementary school environments with training, resources, and lessons to help schools in:

  • Embracing family diversity
  • Creating LGBTQ-inclusive schools
  • Preventing bias-based bullying
