CRS recognizes the vital role Catholic primary and secondary schools play in the Church’s mission of evangelization and catechesis in the United States. CRS helps make faith real for young people by offering opportunities that invite them to put their faith in action.


Featured resources for educators include:

CRS Education: This website is a gateway to resources for educators and is designed to prepare students to be global citizens who encounter the world.

CRS Rice Bowl Resources for Schools: We have sample newsletter blurbs, lesson plans by grade level (K–12), activities and prayers to help make it easy for educators to make Lent come to life for students.


Elementary

Ark of Hope: The CRS Ark of Hope program provides a prayer service and lesson plans about the story of Noah’s ark. In addition to the educational resources, communities can buy symbolic animals to “build an ark.” 

Little Flower Challenge: This is an annual, one-day program in October. The theme for October of 2017’s Little Flower Challenge is tentatively “Clean Water.” 

CST Lesson Plans: These lesson plans cover each of the Seven Themes of Catholic Social Teaching for grades 1–8. They illustrate each principle of Catholic social teaching through stories about our beneficiaries overseas.


High School 

Global High Schools: This program provides opportunities for Catholic secondary schools to join with CRS to educate and advocate for solidarity.

CRS FoodFast: Through adaptable modules for educators, FoodFast uses experiential learning to help Catholic youth grow in their awareness of global hunger.  

Legislative Advocacy Toolkit: We offer a toolkit of activities that help educators explain what legislative advocacy is, reflect on how it connects to our faith and equip students to take action.
