For Students: Single 75-90 minute presentation: $600
For Adults, Educators, Administrators, and Staff: Single 1.5-3 hour workshop/presentation: $1200 We also offer group rates and subsidies to accommodate your budget. If cost is a barrier, please indicate this when submitting the booking form.

Out In Schools is a non-profit initiative, which relies on donations to keep our fee structure low and the program going.
While much of our demand is primarily from middle school and high school aged youth, we have content to present to other groups, too. In the past we have presented to youth in grades 4-6 and have held professional development sessions for educators and administrators. We have also presented to government agencies, elected officials, and small and large corporations.
We can present to all group sizes from a cozy screening with your GSA/QSA to 30 students in a class to an auditorium screening for the entire school!
Yes, we can do multiple presentations in a single day.
While we can always be flexible with the lengths of our presentations, they are multi-faceted and require the time to do well. We typically tailor them to your unique learning objectives in a 1-2 hour session.
Try us! We are flexible about the time of day, whether it’s during class, at lunch, or after school.
Yes! We love presenting in rural communities; however, because the cost is so much greater for travel and accommodation, we try to cluster a set of school presentations together over a few days or week. We simply ask that you help us out with planning.
