Horace Mann was founded in 1945 by two Springfield, Illinois, teachers who saw a need for quality, affordable auto insurance for teachers. Since then, we’ve broadened our mission to helping all educators protect what they have today and prepare for a successful tomorrow. We’re motivated by the fact that educators take care of our children’s future, and we believe they deserve someone to look after theirs. We help educators identify their financial goals and develop plans to achieve them. This includes insurance to protect what they have today and financial products to help them prepare for their future. Our tailored offerings include special rates and benefits for educators. And we’ve created a suite of real, workable solutions to help you: reduce out-of-pocket classroom spending, get retirement ready and more.

Media Power Youth’s mission is to provide curricula, training, and workshops to build young people’s media literacy knowledge and critical-thinking skills through hands-on, engaging programs. Our goal is to teach youth to consume and create media safely and responsibly, reaping all of its benefits while recognizing the influence it can have on their physical and mental health, decision making, and relationships.
Whether students are creating a music video, analyzing a film, or making a PSA about a cause they believe in, we give students the space to learn by doing and to become advocates for their communities, while also building their social-emotional wellbeing and critical-thinking skills. We also offer opportunities for students to have a voice about how technology habits can affect mental health and relationships, like our Youth Design Team, which will design educational experiences to prepare young people for the challenges they will likely encounter in digital spaces. You can learn more about this initiative at mediapoweryouth.org/youth-design-team.

Story Preservation Initiative produces original, age-appropriate fiction and nonfiction audio stories that are designed to capture students’ attention, inspire them, and open new pathways of creative and critical thought. We couple these stories with related, hands-on and standards-aligned lesson plans and projects that deepen student engagement for meaningful, real-world relevant learning. SPI is a free online resource, available to students, teachers, parents, and learners everywhere.
For SPI’s K-3 Storytelling project, Story Preservation works in collaboration with an ethnically and culturally diverse group of master storytellers to bring timeless fictional stories – fairytales, myths, folklore, and contemporary tales of enchantment – into K-3 classrooms and homes. SPI believes that timeless tales, when told by master storytellers, captivate young minds and spark imagination. Through their telling, young children come to know the magic and power of story, resulting in an increased interest and proficiency in language and literacy. SPI’s 4-12 Learning Lab brings our original primary source, non-fiction audio recordings of those of high achievement in the arts, sciences, and humanities together with related projects and lesson plans for use in 4-12 classrooms. Teachers use these real-world relevant stories to bring students into personal contact with the first-person narratives of extraordinary people who talk about not only what they have accomplished but also how and why. This direct contact seizes students’ imaginations and propels them into areas of substantive content.
