Leveling the Playing Field for Educational Opportunity
GBH reaches millions of children, families and teachers in Boston and across the country through engaging and interactive content available for free across multiple platforms. The GBH Kids Catalyst Fund supports the Foundation’s long-standing commitment to developing learning media approaches that will connect with and serve a broad and diverse audience and help close the learning gaps for marginalized communities.
Addressing the critical need for inclusive, research-based, widely-accessible quality children’s resources, gifts to the fund will allow our team to continue to produce both popular programming and community and classroom learning media tools for kids, as well as establish partnerships that help to advance this work.
“Public media plays a powerful role in supporting educational achievement for all children, especially from underserved families. GBH’s engaging popular media content and quality educational resources are designed to support equitable learning and represent diverse cultures and perspectives, vastly increasing the potential for educational impact at home and in school.”
