The Max Warburg Courage Curriculum is a non-profit language arts and character development curriculum for sixth and ninth grade students in Boston and beyond. It honors the memory of Max Warburg, an 11-year-old Boston student who lost his battle with leukemia in 1991. The year-long program empowers students to realize that their actions and decisions can be powerful agents of change, both in their lives and the lives of others. Through reading, writing and discussion students discover, then recognize, the role of courage in the lives of the characters they read about, in the lives of those around them, and in their own lives – past, present and future. Since 1991, the Max Warburg Courage Curriculum has served more than 80,000 young people and supported their teachers in promoting literacy and value-based education.
