2019 Summer Teachers’ Institute

Teachers from grades 6 through 12, in Social Studies and English Language Arts, are invited to apply for the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh’s Summer Teachers’ Institute.

For the first time, we will offer two levels; with both levels, we are excited to offer lodging options for those who need it. This year, we are also having teachers apply for admission before registering. Applications are reviewed and applicants notified within two weeks of submitting whether they have been accepted to the Institute.

Act 48 credit is available. Each day breakfast will be provided; an hour break will be provided to buy your own lunch off-site or brown-bag.
