Virginia Teacher Professional Development Opportunities

These 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.

We offer trainings throughout the state on a rotating basis as well as provide professional development to schools and school districts by request. See upcoming sessions below or contact Bill Wilson to request a session for your school/district.
