We are encouraging people around the world to reflect on how their lives or communities have been changed through education. So far, #ThroughEducation has reached more than 1.4 million people on social media, and community members continue to share the power of education through tweets, photos, and video.
Every week on social media, we are sharing posts from the HGSE community and beyond on #ThroughEducation Thursday.
Share your story
Here’s how you can participate:
- Print out this #ThroughEducation sign (106KB pdf).
- Show us where you make a difference through education. You can photograph the sign in your classroom or workplace, take a selfie holding the sign, or customize the sign with your writing or artwork — be creative!
- Tell us in 25 words or less how your life or community has been shaped (or will be) through education.
- Share it on a Thursday on your Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram accounts with #ThroughEducation.
You can help us spread the word, too — invite your friends, family, students, and colleagues to share their own stories!

Students from the Young Men’s Leadership Program in the Boston Public Schools helped us kick off the #ThroughEducation campaign. They helped co-produce this video, where they share how education has impacted their lives and their hopes and aspirations for the future.
Here’s how others have shared their stories. We want to hear from you, too!
