OPEN TO: EDUCATORS/YOUTH WORKERS

The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum invites Chicago Public School Teachers, grades 8-12, as well as community-based youth workers to participate in a youth-led Teach-In Series from January – May 2016. These teach-in’s will center the lived experiences and action-based research of Cities of Peace Fellows who have been interrogating the roots of structural and interpersonal violence, community resistance, and healing through the lens of Hull-House and Chicago history, Cambodia, and Chicago today. This teach-in series is an inaugural pilot which we hope to launch nationally and internationally in coming years. We’re looking for fearless educators who will help us radically re-imagine learning spaces as sites for healing and resistance in Chicago and beyond!
