President Barack Obama has asked all of us to help in renewing America's promise. You, as future educators, are at the center of President Obama's message of hope. What better place to answer the President's call than participating in an Urban Education Program in Washington, D.C.?
The Urban Education Program will give you a competitive advantage in today's competitive market. The program will allow education students to take a course in Urban Education and an internship in a school or community based organization. The course and internship fulfill the requirements for a foundation course and early field experience.
