Good afternoon, friends in civics! We are excited to share with you this exciting opportunity!

The Center for Civic Education and the Alabama Center for Law and Civic Education present a unique opportunity for upper elementary middle school and high school teachers to take part in professional development featuring We the People: Project Citizen, one of the country’s foremost civic education programs.

The Project Citizen Research Program uses Project Citizen curricular materials as the primary base of instruction. The materials are designed to foster active participation in a process-oriented curriculum that allows students to use interdisciplinary skills to monitor and influence public policy in their communities to solve real-life issues. Each participant receives a classroom set of Project Citizen textbooks as well as additional materials on public policy. This Professional Development Institute is funded by the Center for Civic Education through a grant from the U. S. Department of Education and presented by the Alabama Center for Law and Civic Education.

This is a great opportunity to grow and learn around best practices in civics education, and has some significant benefits.

Do you have questions about the program? Please email our dear friend, and passionate supporter of civic education, Jackie Viana! Or reach out to us and we will connect you.
