In 2016, committed to supporting our state’s K-12 teachers, the Society and Carolina K-12 fund of Carolina Public Humanities developed the William Friday Teacher Education Initiative, with the goal of equally educating and appreciating our state’s hard working educators through free, quality professional development events.  

These retreats provide K-12 teachers with three dynamic days to learn about North Carolina’s captivating history, literature, and culture in an academic, professional and celebratory retreat atmosphere.  To date, 219 public school teachers from 74 NC counties have participated.  These teachers will reach a minimum of 30,660 K-12 students each year.
