Coronavirus: Supporting Educators Who Support Kids in Need

Supporting Educators Who Support Kids in Need 

Coronavirus has shuttered schools–some for the rest of the school year–and left educators to implement at-home learning plans without the necessary resources. It has left kids in need without what may be the only access they have to the Internet or to books–making at-home learning close to impossible and leaving them at a significant disadvantage. However, for every child in need, there is an educator who is working, creating, and innovating to make sure their kids don’t fall behind. First Book is doing everything we can to support the educators who are keeping kids in need engaged in a time of crisis.

For Educators
You do so much to support your kids. Let us support you.

We are creating and compiling free resources to support you and your students at home. We will continue to update these resources, and to support you.

Our Partners

We would not be able to reach as many educators and kids in need without the help of our generous partners. We could not be more grateful for their support.

“This crisis exacerbates the inequities that already exist. Children from low-income families often don’t have access to the Internet or books. The educators who serve them are doing everything they can, and we need to do everything we can to support them.”
