We're set for the official launch of our Dream Flag Project Tenth Anniversary season with a free kickoff and teacher workshop on Sunday, February 24th at the National Constitution Center. This event is particularly good for teachers who may be new to The Dream Flag Project but will also offer the experienced teacher new ideas, information, and connections to other teachers. Make it a Sunday afternoon outing for yourself--or for family and friends too.

Attendees will receive:

Print packet of Dream Flag Project curriculum materials.
Chance to hear from and ask questions of experienced Dream Flag Project teachers from the Philadelphia region and beyond --live and via Skype.
Inspiration from Philadelphia city leaders.
Hands-on opportunity to make a Dream Flag.
Free admission to the National Constitution Center--for workshop attendees as well as other guests.
$9 parking voucher for National Constitution Center parking  garage.
