Professional Development Program Audience
"Centering Youth Agency in the Civil Rights Movement" is a professional development program hosted by Children's Defense Fund and Florida A&M University. The institute will select 25 K-12 teachers of all subject areas, exposing participants to new approaches to civil rights history that center the agency of young people. "Centering Youth Agency in the Civil Rights Movement" is a two-week combined program, with the first week in person and the second week hosted virtually. The institute's aim is to give educators the knowledge and tools they need to teach a richer, more representative version of civil rights history that also activates students' power to become engaged citizens and positive change agents in their communities.
