Become a Mikva Teacher
Mikva Challenge always welcomes new teachers who are excited about using our Action Civics model and interested in using our curricula, attending our workshops, or participating in our programs. We invite teachers and youth workers to choose their level of involvement according to their interests and availability.

- Use our curricula: The Center for Action Civics currently has complete curricula, both digital and print, that you can order online. We have a variety of free options as well as curricula for purchase. Click here to learn more about our curriculum and to order your copies today.
- Use our resources: We also offer a variety of supplementary classroom resources on our website and encourage educators to submit resources that they’d like to share on the page.
- Attend our workshops: CFAC also offers several professional development workshops each year aimed at helping teachers improve their ability to implement various aspects of the Action Civics model in their own classrooms. Summer workshops typically cost a fee, and school year workshops are free to attend. Participants earn professional development credit-hours for their attendance. Subscribe to our bulletin to find information on coming workshops as they are scheduled.
