Different and the Same is a child-focused initiative that helps students identify, talk about, and prevent prejudice. The centerpiece of the program is a series of six child-friendly videos developed by the company affiliated with the highly-regarded children’s program "Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood." The videos utilize a diverse group of puppets and live actors to teach lessons about differences, respect, and getting along with others. In addition, a workshop facilitator’s guide accompanies each set of videos.

Through the lessons, teachers and their students touch on themes ranging from stereotyping, speaking different languages, cross-cultural and interracial friendships, and standing up against prejudice. A trained facilitator guides the process, encouraging the class to share their own experiences and come up with creative solutions. These lessons stay with children for a lifetime, helping them develop into caring and compassionate citizens.

We provide an individually scheduled volunteer training, approximately one hour in length. It's best practice if the volunteer can shadow an experienced facilitator as well. We provide all necessary materials, and the teacher and/or other school faculty provides behavior management and technological support.

Volunteers will commit to facilitating six, 35 minute, weekly sessions in the classroom.
