Teacher Resource Center

Building and strengthening the capacity of local organizations committed to working together toward the well-being of children and youth in our communities.

Working With Schools

Among a community's most valuable assets are its children and youth. Every child deserves the right to learn, and every family deserves the right to see their children achieve their fullest potential. For children growing up in poverty, education can be the key that unlocks the door to a brighter future. But in homes where resources are scarce and options are few, purchasing school supplies often becomes secondary to paying the rent or keeping the power on.

Children whose families struggle to make ends meet often face greater challenges succeeding in school than peers from better-resourced communities. World Vision works to level the playing field for these students by providing the tools they need to learn.

Providing Opportunities

Each year, tens of thousands of teachers visit World Vision's Teacher Resource Centers in the under-resourced communities where World Vision serves. Teachers in qualifying schools, where at least 70 percent of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, can visit our centers to stock up on learning and classroom supplies like binders, notebooks, crayons, glue sticks, and much more. Generous corporate donors provide these new, quality supplies that help ensure all students have the tools they need to learn. We also often distribute new backpacks filled with school supplies at back-to-school events.

Teacher Resource Center Subscription

Qualifying schools can take advantage of full World Vision membership, including access to the Teacher Resource Center, based on a schedule provided by World Vision staff. Interested school partners also have access to other World Vision resources, such as:

Volunteer activities

Teachers and other school staff are invited to volunteer at one of our World Vision locations to help stock shelves, unpack donated items, and sort school supplies in the Teacher Resource Center.
