The Center for Civic Education develops instructional materials for use with young people in classrooms and community programs at the elementary, secondary, and post-secondary levels. The Center has also developed the premier reference materials in civic education, including curricular content standards and frameworks.
The Center's Civitas International Programs partner organizations in more than eighty nations have adapted the Center’s curricular materials for use in their respective countries. Partners have also developed new and innovative programs and materials based on their needs. Civitas partners share ideas and references online on the CIVNET civic education community (civnet.org) and the Civic Education Resource Inventory (ceri.civnet.org).
