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 encouraging educators and families to:

  • Embrace family diversity
  • Develop LGBTQ-inclusive schools
  • Prevent bias-based bullying and gender stereotyping
  • Support transgender and gender-expansive students


To create safer elementary school climates, HRC Welcoming Schools Facilitators provide professional development training to schools and districts across the nation equipping adults with tools they need to help elementary students succeed.
