Educational Experiences

Facilitated Virtual School Programs


The Kennedy Institute is offering live virtual programs, facilitated by Institute staff, for the 2020-2021 school year. Participants will join a video conference for an interactive virtual program that invites students to delve into and discuss important national issues. All programs include a pre-program technology check, supporting resources to prepare for and reflect on the program. Programs can be scheduled at least two weeks in advance and are being offered on a limited basis, Tuesdays-Thursdays. You can find supporting materials for these programs as well as other classroom resources in our Online Resources library.
