What is EYV?
EYV is a suite of programs designed to create a new generation of lifelong active voters. EYV programs are being used by middle schools throughout New Jersey to satisfy the state’s requirement to provide a discreet semester of civics education as part of the Social Studies credit requirement for middle school graduation under Laura Wooten’s Law: NJ Alignment of State Civics Standards for Grade 8 and Grade 12 with the Energizing Young Voters Modules.
Delivering Curriculum in Morris Area Schools
LWV Morristown Area is bringing this highly successful program to schools in our area, partnering with Drew University students trained and supervised by professor Susan Rakosi Rosenbloom to deliver the classroom instruction.
In 2023, we presented the curriculum, The Suffrage Timeline: Was it Worth It? to middle school students in Parsippany-Troy Hills, Morristown and Dover. Drew University students in Susan Rakosa Rosenbloom’s Sociology of Education class received training in the above lesson, which is one of several units included in the Energizing Young Voters (EYV) curriculum.
The program requires that college students be accompanied by a trained League member when they visit middle schools. Plans are underway to schedule return visits and expand our reach in the Spring of 2024. If you are interested in participating in this worthwhile partnership, please us at email@example.com.
