Better World Day

The countdown is on! On Friday, May 4th, join more than 50,000 EL Education students and teachers for Better World Day, a time to honor the power of students across the country to shape a more just future through their learning. School communities will share student work that has contributed to a better world and connect with fellow citizen scholars across the country in acts of service. Join us on social media with hashtag #BetterWorldDay!

Better World Project

Our students are leading the way to a better world. An Advisory Board of EL Education students, teachers and leaders has selected a group of exemplary projects taking place this year that join character to scholarship, contributing to the community and building bridges of understanding across differences. Discover the 18 winning Better World Projects and follow their progress on social media with hashtag #BetterWorldProject.
