Using the ELC

The Eskolta Learning Center is a free toolkit for educators leading professional development with a focus on reengaging students.


Explore tools created by, with, and for educators

The materials in the Eskolta Learning Center combine research and real-life examples from middle and high schools throughout New York City. The tools, guides, and samples are drawn from Eskolta’s work in over 120 school change projects in New York City public schools. They have been designed, tested, and refined in partnership with teachers, school leaders, counselors, and district leaders.
