The conference will feature presentations by fellow educators and other experts in the area of WWII history, a panel discussion with WWII veterans, tours of sites of WWII significance, and a remembrance ceremony at the WWII Memorial. Each participant who participates in the full conference will receive a certificate for 26 continuing education hours.

The program is open to any elementary, middle, or high school teacher or college professor at an accredited public, charter, private or parochial school who will teach during the 2020–2021 school year. Media specialists, librarians, curriculum coordinators and academic coaches are eligible as long as they spend at least half of their time providing direct instruction to students.

Participants will be exposed to a broad spectrum of WWII history resources and tools aimed at educating current and future generations about the everyday men and women whose character, courage, creativity, determination, and innovation not only led to the winning of the war, but also reshaped America.

At the heart of the Friends’ Teachers Network and Conference program is the concept of community service.

Friends hopes conference participants will return to their schools and communities with the ability and desire to empower America’s young people with a heightened sense of community, civic engagement, and personal responsibility to renew the spirit of unity and shared purpose, which defined the character of our country during the war years. Therefore, each participant will be expected to enlist their students to fulfill a community service obligation within their communities in the year following the conference.
