TUT Workshop Packages

One of TUT’s main projects is our civic engagement workshop, which aims to explore how and why it’s important to vote (learn more on our initiatives page). Below are links to all the resources needed to facilitate their own version of the workshop. Each workshop has a theme for the deliberative discussion, or you may choose to remove the deliberative discussion altogether for your workshop. Each package includes (1) presentation slides, (2) facilitator notes explaining how to give the workshop, and (3) two handouts to be used in the workshop. Email us at TUTuofm@gmail.com with any additional questions.
