Québec is one of the Canadian provinces that does not formally include Holocaust studies in its curriculum. This scholarship program is designed to offer professional development opportunities to educators through international seminars. The program provides tools to teachers in order to facilitate change in attitude and behaviour in schools, to engage students in action, and to promote respect for diversity.
For long-time client, T-H-E Program, we developed a new responsive website that is better capable of featuring the multitude of experiences and activities offered and implemented through this program.
“The highest result of education is tolerance.” –Helen Keller
This conviction led Riva and Thomas O. Hecht to establish their scholarship program and to offer professional development opportunities to educators in Quebec through the International Seminar for Educators at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, Israel.
CommDesign has been working with the The Riva and Thomas O. Hecht Scholarship Program since its inception and we were excited to mark its 10th anniversary. For the anniversary book, CommDesign collected feedback from past participating educators as well as students’ work and comments. The material was edited into an Anniversary Book, displaying the unparalleled value of education and the role it plays in promoting tolerance and understanding among the next generation. The book was distributed to participating school boards in Quebec and to sponsors.
