This year, NCoC will be focusing on the different ways we can support leaders and organizations to increase civic participation locally. In order for that to happen in a meaningful way, we need more investment and resources in civic education across the country.
We invite you to join a special event focused on advancing civic education with a state that’s leading the way in this effort: Maryland. Join our partners at the Maryland Civic Education Coalition on Wednesday, February 17th from 3-7pm for the Maryland Civic Education & Engagement Leadership Summit. While the conversation will focus primarily on Maryland, this event is open to leaders from any state or community.
Former Secretary of Education John B. King and educators from Street Law, Inc, University of Maryland College of Education, and the Maryland State Department of Education will lead roundtable sessions on service-learning, media literacy, civics curriculum, and more – with a focus on identifying strategies to increase civic education and engagement opportunities equitably that can be applied in any state or community. Learn more and register for the Maryland Civic Education & Engagement Leadership session here.
We’re also looking for volunteers for the event to serve in a various roles – sign up here to join as a volunteer!
