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 child achieve their fullest potential. For children growing up in poverty, education can be the key that unlocks the door to a brighter future. Yet when children are growing up 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 other better-resourced communities. World Vision works to level the field for these students by providing the tools they need for effective learning.

Supplying Vital Resources
School supplies - Teachers serving at schools in low-income neighborhoods are invited to visit World Vision to stock up on learning tools like binders, pencils, crayons, and glue sticks.
Our nationwide back-to-school distributions often include new backpacks filled with school provisions.
Providing Opportunities for Selected Schools
Each year, tens of thousands of teachers visit World Vision's Teacher Resource Centers, located in the under-resourced communities where World Vision works. Teachers serving at schools in low-income neighborhoods visit our resource centers to stock up on learning and classroom supplies and much more. Generous corporate donors provide these new, quality supplies that help ensure all students have the tools they need to learn.
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.
Here are just some of the other programs that you will have access to as a World Vision member:
