The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (VOC) invites you to apply for the 2017 National Seminar for High School Educators on July 16-18 and July 19-21 in Washington, DC.
The 24-hour professional development program is free to middle school and high school educators interested in teaching about the history of communism and its collectivist legacy.
Registration is open to all educators currently teaching at the middle school and high school levels. Lunch is provided all three days; there is a reception on the first evening, and a dinner on the second evening. There is no cost to attend the seminars. Teachers, however, are responsible for their transportation to and accommodations in Washington, DC, and may apply for scholarship support of up to $1,000 to offset travel expenses.
The applications for the program and scholarships are available at the link below. Early registration is encouraged, as remaining spaces are limited.
