Professional development is a cornerstone of the Population Education program. Since 1975, we have provided workshops for hundreds of thousands of educators around the U.S. and Canada.

Our curriculum and workshops are hands-on, cross-curricular and promote issue-based learning while also meeting state and national standards in a range of disciplines including science, social studies, mathematics, language arts and environmental education. Workshop length and content are tailored to the professional needs of participants.
