Part of the 2019 AFT TEACH Conference.

Our young people are the future. That’s why it’s important to find ways to engage middle and high school students in civic life. Join the United Teachers of Dade in this union-created professional development to help students understand how decisions are made in civic life and how they can play a role in the decision-making process. Participants will learn ways students can collaborate to generate ideas about issues that impact their schools or communities and the steps they can take to effect change.

Presenters: Dwight Bullard, political director, New Florida Majority; Karla Hernandez-Mats, president, United Teachers of Dade (Miami, Fla.) and UTD Teaching Excellence Foundation
