Democracy Bootcamp

CIVIX’s Democracy Bootcamps are professional development conferences that aim to give elementary and high school teachers the necessary tools to talk about democracy in their classrooms. Bootcamps were successfully organized in Quebec in 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

These conferences are the perfect opportunity for teachers from all over Quebec to exchange on the best ways to talk about democracy and how to initiate their students to their civic duty. The 2015 Camp prepared teachers to better organize the federal Student Vote in their schools. This will also be the case for our September 2019 Bootcamp and the 2019 federal Student Vote.

During our meet-ups, participating teachers have the chance to exchange with experts from various backgrounds. The topics are, among other things, media literacy, campaign strategies and the importance of a strong democracy.

We cover your transportation, hotel, food and substitute teacher fees.

The next democracy Bootcamps will be held in Montreal on the 19th and the 20th September. For more information or to register, please visit the following address.
