Programs For Educators

Why participate in professional development at Shelburne Farms? Find out in this video. In it, educators reflecting at our 2014 Summer Institute on Educating for Sustainability capture the spirit of all our professional development programs.

Our educator workshops are offered throughout the year, with many programs in the summer. To bring you the richest programming, we offer many of these workshops in partnership with other organizations. Many of our programs can be taken for graduate continuing education credits. For questions, please contact our Director of Professional Development, Jen Cirillo.
