As part of the Commonwealth's commemoration of the 100th and 75th anniversaries of WWI and WWII, and as a means to explore and share the countless resources Virginia offers for learning about WWI and WWII, the Virginia World War I and World War II Commemoration Commission has joined with partners across Virginia for two years to host a series of 12 symposiums across the state.

In July 2019, the Commission will host two final symposiums in Richmond and Staunton. Programs are open free to educators in Virginia, and lunch is provided. Attendees will receive certificates confirming six hours of professional development.

The Virginia War Memorial is also offering free teachers institutes across the state in July 2019. For more information, visit: 2019 Summer Teacher Institutes - "Virginians at War"
