I contracted with the National PTA in 2010 to plan and facilitate a Youth Leadership and Policy Institute.
The National PTA contracted with me to design a program focused on engaging high school and college students as education policy advocates. The National PTA Public Policy Team wanted to move students from being the passive recipients of school decision-makers to active partners.
Writing the program from scratch, I worked with experts in PTA’s training office to refine the program and then piloted it at the 2010 National PTA Legislative Conference. The 16-hour curriculum was tested with a national audience of high school and college students.
