Free Webinbar Series for Students and Teachers

Social studies teachers are on the frontlines in helping the next generation make sense of the present and prepare for the future. This semester, whether you are working remotely, inside the classroom, or somewhere in between, we hope you and your students will join Civic Action Project (CAP) to help students understand the connections between addressing real problems, policy, and civic engagement.  

In the next few months, join us for a free series of student and teacher webinars. We promise there will be lots of fun and lots of learning along the way!

Join us bi-monthly on Fridays at 8:30 a.m. (Pacific) and 11:30 a.m.(Eastern) for 40 minute live student webinars led by the CAP Youth Board and featuring dynamic speakers.
