Thank you for
supporting WE
Teachers

With your help we've raised over $5.8 million to support teachers and schools across America. Encourage the teachers in your community to register for the WE Teachers program to take advantage of this free resource.


What is WE Teachers?

Walgreens knows that teachers are the unsung heroes of our communities. That's why, together with our ME to WE Proud Supporters, Walgreens is funding the development of WE Teachers. This new program will be available to educators nationwide at no cost, equipping them with the tools and resources to address critical social issues in their classrooms.

What is WE Teachers?

The WE Teachers program includes:

  • Online modules and curriculum to address critical social issues
  • Training sessions and professional learning
  • Online teacher platform and social community
  • WE Teachers Awards, which help to supplement the cost teachers spend on classroom supplies

Nominate a teacher for a WE Teachers Award

94% of teachers spend more than $500 of their own money on school supplies per year, according to one study.2 That's why Walgreens and the ME to WE Foundation are giving awards to 500 teachers around the country.

Help local teachers and schools by nominating a deserving teacher to receive a $500 Walgreens gift card for classroom supplies.3
