The Nevada Civil War Volunteers is proud to offer educational services to schools in Nevada and California. We will always make an effort to accommodate any requests, though we do ask for a good amount of advance notice. We structure our instruction to meet and exceed Social Studies standards set by the Nevada Department of Education. This is primarily the responsibility of the NCWV Board of Education, which compiles curriculum and works to ensure our material is up to snuff for schools.
The unique part of the outreach and lessons we offer is the personal touch and dedication of our members. Nothing engages students more than seeing someone who is the most interested in the knowledge they have to impart. Our members engage students because they are engaged themselves in the topics they discuss. There is never a dull moment and never a bored gaze.
