ABOUT CLASSROOM LAW PROJECT
Classroom Law Project is a nonprofit organization of individuals, educators, lawyers, and community leaders who work with Oregon’s schools and teachers to prepare our youth to become active, engaged, and informed participants in democratic society. We provide evidence-based programs that bring both teachers and students together with civic leaders, attorneys, judges, law enforcement, and policymakers to provide K-12 students with hands-on experiences that demonstrate how our legal system and government work. During the 2020-21 school year, we provided engaging professional development opportunities to 900 teachers and a wide range of challenging, fun, and experience-based programs to more than 110,000 students. We are a dedicated, passionate, collaborative, and caring team of civic-minded individuals, working with an amazing network of more than 600 volunteers across the state to extend our reach and impact to a growing number of teachers and students.
We are currently pursuing a broad strategic initiative to extend the reach of our programs to more teachers and students throughout Oregon, including those in both rural areas and metropolitan centers. One of the key components of this strategy is our Educator Resource Community (ERC) which hosts Classroom Law Project digital resources and collaboration opportunities for social studies and civics educators throughout Oregon. We are seeking a full-time Digital Community Manager to join our team and evolve this resource and the other tools that serve our expanding community.
