The U.S. Census Bureau has created a Census in Schools program called 2010 Census: It's about Us. The program will provide educators with resources to teach the nation's students about the importance of the census so children can help deliver this message to their families. The program will engage America's youth to help ensure every child and every household member is counted in 2010. This fact sheet provides information about the program, its target audiences, program lesson goals, and key dates for Census 2010.
