This program is a part of the national civic education initiative from the National Archives. Our interactive distance learning programs draw upon the vast holdings of the National Archives to promote the knowledge, skills, and dispositions students need for civic engagement in the 21st century. Each program is led by one of our educators located at National Archives sites, the Center for Legislative Archives, and Presidential Libraries across the country. Check archives.gov/education/civic-education for more information, including how to request a program for groups of 10 or more students.
All events listed in the calendar are free unless noted.
