Learning Courage membership gives your school timely, relevant and vital information about how to build healthy relationships, reduce sexual misconduct and respond appropriately to incidents when they do occur.


We aspire to eradicate sexual abuse in schools so children of all ages can thrive in their learning
environment. Learning Courage inspires cultural change in sexual abuse reduction and response
through its core values of ongoing learning, effective collaboration, genuine caring, and unwavering integrity.

    Kristy Kerin, Head of School, Brewster Academy

  • "Learning Courage brings a very sensitive and well-informed perspective on what the survivor community needs and how that can inform school policies to keep students safe.”

    Craig Bradley, Head of School, The Hotchkiss School

  • “Bringing in Learning Courage was the best thing I could have done. They helped us institutionalize our practices around sexual misconduct.”

    Chris Mazzola, Head of School, The Branson School

  • ““You need people to guide you and help you through. And that’s what Learning Courage does. If you’re going to put a focus on this work, the first thing you should do is become a member of Learning Courage.”

    Christy Cooper, Former Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response Coordinator, The Hotchkiss School

  • "The way that Learning Courage went about their work was first to get to know our school. That was so important to us. And when I asked student leaders what were some of the highlights of the year so far, many of them mentioned that workshop with Learning Courage.”
