About Us

TeachUNICEF aims to support and create well-informed global citizens who understand interconnectedness, value diversity, and have the ability to take action in meaningful ways.

TeachUNICEF provides educators and youth service professionals  with global learning resources for grades PreK-12: in-person workshops, school-based programming, free web-based lesson plans, videos, multi-media resources and more.

Using a rights-based framework, TeachUNICEF programs and materials engage students in a meaningful exploration of social, political and economic issues of global concern. TeachUNICEF lessons are interdisciplinary and aligned to state and national educational standards. They cover topics ranging from child labor to poverty to gender equality.

What is UNICEF?

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) works in more than 190 countries and territories to save and improve children’s lives, providing health care and immunizations, clean water and sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF supports UNICEF’s work through fundraising, advocacy, and education in the United States. Together, we are working toward the day when zero children die from preventable causes and every child has a safe and healthy childhood.
