Helping another teacher post a project on DonorsChoose.org is the ultimate pay-it-forward! Whether you are working one-on-one with a teacher, or doing large group training, we appreciate your time and dedication to get materials into as many classrooms as possible. Here are some tips on how you can encourage fellow teachers to get on board with DonorsChoose.org:
- Spread the word – use this awesome outreach flier to let colleagues know about DonorsChoose.org. You can even put your name at the top in case anyone has questions and they don’t know who to go to.
- Be prepared – make sure your audience has a project idea ready, and they have a classroom photo ready to upload so they can get started right away! Set aside some time to avoid distractions, and make sure you have access to a computer with internet.
- Walk them through the process – our outreach slides provide an overview of our organization, as well as a step-by-step look at submitting a project. Feel free to edit this and make it your own.
- Gather – plan a workshop or presentation for your colleagues! Let us know if you need fliers, handouts, or pamphlets and we'll do our best to send them over within a few weeks.
Thank you for helping us empower teachers! Be sure to join our Facebook page for teachers to let us know about the awesome work that you're doing.
