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.

  • Attend our workshopsCFAC 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.
