Founding Civics in Virginia
JMC first started teacher programming in Virginia in 2019with an annual weeklong summer institute at the University of Virginia. Now, three years later, we are developing a graduate course at UVA, a summer institute at American University. The “birthplace of American democracy” is becoming a national leader in civic education. JMC programming is rapidly growing in the state.
We hope that by 2026, one third of all Charlottesville area social studies teachers will have participated in a JMC Founding Civics program.
