Our Project CED curriculum will focus on the 2012 elections, including gubernatorial, congressional, senatorial, and presidential. After studying the four kinds of elections being voted on, all students will be able to vote in a Mock Election for candidates in their state. And, program participants who are citizens of voting age, or who will be of voting age by November 6, will be given the option to download a voter registration application and register to vote.
Project CED will use a multi platform approach to make civic education fun, exciting, and available to everyone with internet access. Using Facebook, texting, twitter, and email, students will expand the "virtual classroom" throughout their social network, engaging their friends to catch the latest breaking news regarding the Latino vote, listen to candidates address our issues, listen to or read the opinions of other students, track the latest polls, and keep up with the latest in political humor, which are just a few of the features being built into the model.
CLDP is a seven-week, interactive, bilateral, policy-oriented training program for Latino student leaders and university staff, faculty, and administrators. The program is designed to focus on how to formulate, exercise, and influence policy.
