Classroom Catalyst is a woman-built and -directed grant program that supports educator-designed initiatives that use the classroom or community as a catalyst for change in the lives of all girls.
BUILDING CRITICAL LEADERSHIP SKILLS
Research shows that some of the skills and abilities girls and young women need to become strong and effective leaders include risk taking, courage, confidence, empathy, dealing with conflict, clear communication, collaboration skills and critical consciousness.
"I celebrate teaching that enables transgressions - a movement against and beyond boundaries. It is that movement which makes education the practice of freedom."
