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

The Learning Courage Advantage: Learning Courage membership gives your school timely, relevant and vital information about how to reduce sexual misconduct and respond appropriately to incidents when they occur. We understand the importance of doing this work well, and we also know the challenges that arise when you are busy and pulled in many directions. Learning Courage is here to guide you, save you time and help you work smart with compassion and integrity. Working directly with a Member Representative who knows you and your school, you can not only respond in real-time to situations with a survivor-centric and trauma-informed approach, you can also make long-lasting change by collaboratively dismantling the systemic obstacles that exist in all of our institutions.

You are not Alone: At Learning Courage, we believe that one of the best ways to keep schools safe is to learn from each incident and share these insights with others. You are not alone in dealing with these serious and important issues and membership provides you with a network of support and training in areas of relevance to you. You and your peer schools will benefit from the collaboration, joint workshops by areas of specialization, and research generated by Learning Courage.

Our Commitment: We are dedicated to helping schools build safe learning environments for both students and educators. We are also committed to the safety and health of anyone who has been harmed by sexual misconduct. In fact, many among our staff are survivors. We use that knowledge and dedication to provide the best resources available for you from assessing your policies and procedures to looking at Board/Head of School alignment to training for students, faculty, staff, administrators and board members. Our approach is always survivor-centric, trauma-informed and resiliency-based. We are dedicated to you by knowing your school and helping you be the healthiest, safest and most resilient place you can be.

  • "My work with survivors of sexual misconduct asked more of me than anything I'd previously done or imagined. It was also a privilege to be afforded the responsibility to do it as well as possible. I only wish that I had met the team at Learning Courage before taking on the work; their wisdom, compassion, and commitment to supporting school leaders in keeping students safe will serve generations of individuals and school communities to come."
