A free Project Citizen Workshop will be held on Thursday, 17 March in Paris for educators in grades 5-12. During the workshop, educators will learn how to engage students in public policy issues within their community.
We the People: Project Citizen Trainings
1-day workshops are designed for educators interested in involving their students or members of youth or community organizations in Project Citizen - a structured learning experience that helps students become responsible and involved citizens. Through Project Citizen, students in grades 5-12 identify and research a public policy issue in their community, develop their own solution, and create and implement an action plan. Students also hone their presentation skills as they share their work with authentic policy-makers.
