Your donation will help us promote and sustain the integrity, courage, and commitment of educators and school leaders who nurture the lives of students throughout Maine.

As a program of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, a 501c3 organization, Courage to Teach® relies on the support of friends to keep this work focused on personal and professional development affordable for Pre K-16 educators and school leaders in Maine. Your donation may be tax deductible depending on your financial status and is an investment in educators and school leaders who are committed to their profession and to the children, families, and communities of Maine.

With the support of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension working closely with area schools and University campuses, we are committed to helping individual educators and school leaders “reconnect who they are with what they do” by providing day-long, multi-day and one-year weekend retreat series. The actual cost for offering the retreats is typically more than the fee that participants pay for meals, lodging and the retreat experience. Your contribution will help us to bridge the gap between the actual cost and the participant’s fee to ensure that the program is accessible to a diverse audience.
