I enjoyed providing an overview of the County's budget to the Char-Meck Youth Council ⁦@GenNation⁩ & engaging them with a budget exercise. They asked several great questions. The future is bright for our community w/these young leaders! ⁦@MeckCounty⁩ ⁦@GFOA⁩

To expand the electorate & make voting more equitable, we need to support a civic culture & provide opportunities to build civic habits.

Some promising practices for #civic learning include current issue discussion, #medialiteracy, service learning, & opp for #studentvoice.
