NvCCE wrote four letters of support to the Department of Education supporting the Center for Civic Education’s endeavors. We welcome your ideas on building the Nevada Center for Civic Engagement Statewide. It is more important everyday for our citizens to learn about our United State Constitution and how current events correlate to it.
The Center for Civic Education (www.civiced.org) programs of We the People, Project Citizen, the James Madison Legacy Project, and Strengthening Democracy in America are all invaluable for our Nevada teachers and students.
The programs teach critical thinking, research skills, communication skills and knowledge.
Our September 2018 trainings will involve panels of community non-profit organizations and elected officials so that our teachers have strategies teaching current events in their classrooms. Our We the People trainers and mentors include: Angela Orr, Sarah Brown, Mario Fitzpatrick, Denise Coverley Paxton, Jamie Thomsen and Frank Rivas in Northern Nevada and Deborah Berger and Carol McGrew in Southern Nevada.
We welcome your Grant ideas and Foundation contacts that will enable us to build a strong Nevada Center for Civic Engagement.
