About Civics Learning Project

Our mission is to equip students with the knowledge, essential skills, and motivation to become active, engaged, and informed participants in democratic society. Civics Learning Project’s core belief—that “the best way to preserve democracy is to teach democracy”—inspires hundreds of Oregon teachers and thousands of students to participate in CLP offerings each year, from classroom lessons and curriculum to experiential learning opportunities such as Courthouse Tours to competitive programs like Mock Trial and We the People. In addition to numerous professional development events throughout the year, Civics Learning Project also offers an annual Summer Institute for civics teachers. Through the generous support of the Oregon State Legislature and the Oregon Department of Education, Civics Learning Project also hosts the Oregon Civics Conference in Salem each December.
