The We Are America Project

Are you an 8th - 12th grade English, history, civics, or humanities teacher?

Will you join us in creating a new student-led dialogue around identity?

The We Are America Project works with young people across the country to define what it means to be American — and to spark a new national conversation about American identity today led by the next generation.

The We Are America Project is led by Lowell High School teacher Jessica Lander and fourteen of her former students, who together published the books We Are America and We Are America Too in 2019. They went on to launch a national project working with teachers and students across the country. Across a school year the We Are America team works with a cohort of teachers, providing curriculum, support and monthly professional development, supporting teachers as they help their students tell their personal stories of American identity. At the end of the year students' stories are published in a book and featured on the project's website.

The We Are America Project is opening applications NOW for its 5th cohort of We Are America Teaching Fellows! (Application closes mid August).
