“Civics for All of US” Teacher Workshop—The Civilian Conservation Corps: Civics at Work (U.S. National Archives)
Thursday, March 30, 2023
Join the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum for this online teacher workshop that will provide resources for exploring how the development of a government "safety net" to protect Americans devastated by
the Great Depression affected civic life. The Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) is a great example to use in teaching about how the government responds to crises. By creating opportunities for unemployed young men, the CCC
was an innovation in government and a model for future government programs benefiting families, cities, and rural communities.
