Middle Level and Secondary Education Club
The Middle Level and Secondary Education Club of Edinboro University provides professional development opportunities to students showing interest in the field of education. The Education Club seeks opportunities to involve children and families from neighboring areas in education-related activities. The club consists of students who have a passion for education and provide them with opportunities for additional experiences in local schools.
The Education Club supports students interested in the various education majors by providing workshops and speakers that address the trends and current events impacting the education field. Students and faculty use the Education Club as a vehicle for support, collaboration, and mentoring. The Education Club invites all education majors to become involved in this professional development. The Education Club seeks to reach out to the greater community through service and volunteer programs and encourages local school to contact the club for additional support with their schools programs.
The Middle level and Secondary Education Club is not limited in its purpose or goals. We continually strive to provide networking opportunities with local school districts and their administrators. We raise funds through various activities and proceeds support locals schools through various programs.
The Middle Level and Secondary Education Club is a non-discriminatory organization. The Education Club is open to all Edinboro University students, staff, and faculty members. The Education Club is an inclusive community organization inviting participation by all people interested in education or related fields.
