ACE Committee Annual Meeting, CLE Sept. 26
ACE Committee Annual Meeting, CLE Sept. 26The Advancing Civics Education Committee (ACE) will hold its annual meeting and CLE program on Thursday, Sept. 26 from 1 to 4 p.m. at The CLE Conference Center on the 10th floor of the Wanamaker Building, Market and Juniper streets.
The program will include instruction, role play, a refresher for returning volunteers and orientation for new volunteers.
ACE is a partnership with public schools in Philadelphia to provide supplemental civics education - in areas such as fundamental principles of citizenship, democracy and dispute resolution - to ninth-grade public school students. An understanding of civics, legal systems and civic participation is vital to the success of future generations. ACE brings civics to life for Philadelphia high school students. This effort will complement the hard work of teachers and principals to create a bridge from middle school to high school that focuses upon each citizen's rights and responsibilities within our community, our commonwealth and our rapidly changing world.
