We are in the process of developing graduate courses specifically in philosophy for children and we have launched a robust philosophy for children program: educators workshops, philosophy summer camp for teens, and philosophy in the local schools.  Several faculty members have a close working relationship with colleagues in the College of Education.

Center for Public Philosophy, University of California-Santa Cruz
Author: Kyle Robertson - UCSC
We have opportunities at the Center for graduate students, and undergrads, to work in our public philosophy initiatives. These include a philosophy program in two local elementary schools, working with high school ethics bowl students, working with incarcerated students, among other programs. We hope to build a concentration in public philosophy for graduate students here, and we have had some discussions and planning around this goal, but nothing to offer students yet. Philosophy with children would, of course, be a public philosophy focus students could pursue.
