Host an EU2U Workshop
EU2U Workshops are professional development sessions offered to educators and students at K-12 schools, community colleges, HBCU/MSIs, four-year universities and professional schools. The sessions focus on EU-related topics, helping to bolster participants’ understanding of Europe and the European Union. We also work with educational non-profits and businesses. Thanks to generous grants from the European Union and US Department of Education, we are able to come to your classroom or workplace free of cost.
Who Can Book a Session?
Educational institutions, non-profits and businesses.
- Any North Carolina K-12 school, Community College, or MSI/HBCU.
- Local non-profits and businesses
- Priority will be given to underserved school districts/areas (Title I Schools, Community Colleges, HBCU/MSIs) and those beyond the Research Triangle.
FREE! No booking fees or travel expenses required.
- For K-12 educators, we cannot pay for subs. Please note this when scheduling.
