What is WE Teachers?

WE Teachers is a new, no-cost program for any teacher across America, providing free resources and training to support them in addressing critical social issues with their students. It will ensure that teachers have access to the tools they need to succeed in the classroom, such as innovative experiential learning techniques, and help students become active, engaged citizens.

The WE Teacher program want’s to recognize and honor teachers who are More Than a Teacher: they’re leaders, guides, cheerleaders and mentors, bringing out their students’ potential and playing pivotal roles in their lives. As part of this free program, teachers become part of a powerful network working toward excellence in education and enriching the lives of their students. Because when we support our teachers, we empower their students.

This coming September, you can access free educational resources and interactive modules, training sessions and an online teacher community.

WE Teachers Award

According to one study, 94% of teachers spend more than $500 of their own money on school supplies per year. That’s why Walgreens and WE have developed the WE Teachers Award! To acknowledge the extraordinary teachers in our lives, there will be $250,000 awarded to teachers this academic year.

As a teacher, you can apply for a WE Teachers Award and give yourself a chance to receive a $500 Walgreens gift card to buy the supplies you need to empower your students.
