Teacher Advisory Council

In 2023, the Committee of Seventy is proud to launch its first Teacher Advisory Council.

This group of Pennsylvania high school teachers will help C70 develop resources and conduct outreach to educators across the Commonwealth. 

We are part of the PA Civics Coalition, a group of organizations led by former members of Congress from both parties that are focused on helping school districts meet the state’s new Act 35 requirements for civic education assessment for high school students. This council can be influential in shaping policy goals for C70 and the PA Civics coalition.

Interested in joining? See "How to Apply" below.


  • Review C70 civic education resources for effectiveness, ease-of-use

  • Invite other teachers to participate in C70 learning opportunities

  • Give guidance on policy recommendations that C70 would advocate for statewide.
