Building Citizens and Civic Leaders from the Ground Up

What does being an engaged citizen mean in 2018? How are young people accessing civic education and skills they can leverage? How can they effect change around issues that matter to them—both before they can vote and after? What are the issues and outcomes down the line that matter to youth the most: education, housing, gun violence, voting rights or climate change? Hear perspectives from students, educators, elected officials and organizers on the state of civic education, innovative approaches to civic engagement and the potential for youth to make a difference at all levels, starting in school and continuing for the rest of their lives.
