THE NEXT LEVEL OF CIVIC EDUCATION!

At the CEC Educators Institute you and your lead staff can learn how to develop opportunities for active participation and civic engagement of young leaders in your school with special emphasis on implementing their own projects to address a particular social need in the school and/or community in an effort to obtain the State Seal of Civic Engagement. 

Join us on Tuesday September 19th from 8am - 4:30pm at the Clovis Veterans Memorial Building.

This free - One day institute will provide a broad foundation of skills needed to develop a class or club that is engaged and empowered to work with other like-minded individuals or groups to lead the broader community toward positive change. 

 

Workshops include, but not limited to, the fundamentals of project management, innovative civic engagement project design, project-based collaboration, leveraging assets to ensure project success, and strategies to overcome apathy and skepticism.  In addition, we will discuss the partnership between Fresno County Superintendent of Schools (FCSS) and the Civic Education Center (CEC) and State Seal of Civic Engagement program.
