Buy Tickets to the 2017 Max Gala!


Thanks to the generosity of our volunteers, we can continue to expand within and beyond the United States, and encourage literacy and character development in all youths.

Classroom Volunteers

Adult volunteers visit the classrooms that use the curriculum to lead discussions about the virtues of courage. Many of these volunteers knew Max personally and share their memories of him with the students. Volunteers receive training and support materials, including suggested activity ideas to make the visits more interactive. This component of the program supports the teachers and helps students make a deeper connection with young people as role models of courage.

Essay Judges

Volunteers from all backgrounds and careers are encouraged to offer their perspective and help us select our annual Max Warburg Fellows, sixth-graders from Boston and surrounding communities, as well as participants from our national and international programs, whose essays will be published in our annual essay anthology. Find out more about our national essay contest.

Awards Luncheon

The Awards Luncheon celebrates the unique bond that develops between teachers and students as they work together and learn from each other in the process of writing and editing the courage essays. This event features prominent guest speakers and a ceremony during which the Max Fellows receive medals in recognition of their hard work and courage. For the students, the Awards Luncheon provides the chance to shine in front of their teachers, families, peers, and community. For the teachers, it’s an opportunity to be recognized for their dedication and success in inspiring a new generation of courageous learners. This event occurs in May of every year in Boston. Check our Events section for registration details.
