Who oversee LIGHT Centers, “coordinate” LIGHT Programming with students, and maintain a relationship with the LIGHT Network.
Most commonly, LIGHT Coordinators are teachers who devote part of their regular teaching schedule to oversee LIGHT Centers and LIGHT Programming or who run LIGHT as an extracurricular club. Often a stipend-based position and/or in-lieu of teaching periods or duties, but adaptable within each unique school environment.
LIGHT is incentive-based, so through LIGHT, schools are given local and regional funding opportunities surrounding LIGHT Centers, LIGHT Coordinators, and LIGHT Programming.
“Holocaust Educator of the Year,” 2019-2020 USHMM Teaching Fellow, and JFR “Master Teacher of the Holocaust” Nick Haberman offers a wide variety of LIGHT teacher training (for PA Act 48 credit.)
LIGHT’s ever-changing and ever-growing list of events is made available throughout the LIGHT Network, providing students (and teachers!) with opportunities to inspire, prepare and empower.
LIGHT’s close relationship with the Together We Remember organization gives the LIGHT Network access to unique student-leadership opportunities, like TWR’s “Youth Action Network.”
LIGHT Coordinators gain access to LIGHT’s ever-growing list of exclusive resources, contacts, and opportunities in the members-only section of the LIGHT webpage.
