The Max Warburg Courage Curriculum
The Max Warburg Courage Curriculum is a year-long language arts program dedicated to strengthening the character developement and literacy skills of students. Since the organization's inception in 1991, the Courage Curriculum has enhanced the academic performance, critical thinking skills and essential knowledge of more than 150,000 sixth- and ninth-grade students in the Boston Public Schools and local parochial, charter, pilot and private schools. In addition to our work in Greater Boston, The Max Warburg Courage Curriculum currently partners with schools and communities in 18 US states and 9 foreign countries.
The organization was founded to honor the life of Max Warburg, a courageous sixth grader whose steadfast determination and heartfelt hope in the face of his battle with leukemia continues to inspire our work.
