The Civilian Conservation Corps: Civics at Work
Join the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum for this teacher workshop that will provide resources for exploring how the development of a government "safety net" to protect Americans devastated by the Great Depression affected civic life. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) is a great example to use in teaching about how the government responds to crises. By creating opportunities for unemployed young men, the CCC was an innovation in government and a model for future government programs benefiting families, cities, and rural communities.
Registration is free, and the program will be held via Zoom. You will receive the connection information via email the week of the event. Certificates of participation will be available by request.
