Classroom Law Project seeks Youth Summit volunteers 11/3

Classroom Law Project (CLP) is in great need of professional volunteer Escorts to help make our Youth Summit on Tuesday, November 3 at Portland State University run as smoothly as possible!  The time commitment is only 9:15am – 11:45am.

Escorts are responsible for: leading Speakers between their hearing room and the headquarter room assisting the Speaker and Facilitator as needed during the session

For over 10 years, Youth Summit has inspired students and teachers to explore a timely issue from multiple perspectives.  This annual event combines professional development for teachers with active learning for students. Teachers receive cutting-edge lessons on a topic of interest to students. Students learn about the issues, participate in classroom hearings, and select delegates to represent their class. Approximately 150 students-delegates then meet with policy makers, public officials and civic leaders on Summit day at Portland State University each November.

This year’s topic is “Democracy & What's News: What's a citizen to do?”  Newsrooms, cybernews, journalism, citizen journalists. What does it mean to be well-informed? Where does democracy fit? This year's Youth Summit will focus on questions like these as it connects democracy, a thriving free press, and informed citizenry.

CLP is a non-profit organization of individuals, educators, lawyers and civic leaders building strong communities by teaching students to become active citizens.  CLP provides civic education opportunities to teachers and K-12 students statewide.  Please visit www.classroomlaw.org for additional information about CLP’s projects and programs.
