The Traveling T-Shirt Company Curriculum Training Workshop: Friday, July 29, 2022 from 4:00 to 5:00 PM (ET) (online via Zoom)


Did you know that the average person owns around fourteen t-shirts? Did you know that students buy an average of three school-related t-shirts each year (think spirit wear, sports teams, etc!)? Everybody loves a good t-shirt! So, why not use the t-shirt as a way to teach students about entrepreneurship, globalization, and U.S. History?

The goal of the Traveling T-Shirt Company is to provide students with an opportunity to integrate service-learning within the social studies curriculum. During the implementation of the Traveling T-Shirt Company curriculum, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, globalization, and history combine with service learning to promote the development of a sense of purpose in the lives of students.

During this workshop, educators will receive this 3-6 week program and learn how to implement it in their classroom.
