Developing a new generation of civic leaders.

Through GenerationNation, students learn first-hand how their governments and communities work; understand and can discuss important civic issues and differing points of view; know how to find and use good sources of news and civic information; and, build social capital, knowledge, and experience to be civic leaders who transform their schools, neighborhoods, communities and nation for the better…now and for the future.

Charlotte student leaders are helping to plan youth sessions about local and federal gov policy at upcoming @leagueofcities conference and are excited to get to hear Dr Fauci, @PeteButtigieg @SpeakerPelosi and others speak about policy and public service. #cltmeckyouth #nlcccc

“He wanted to do everything he could to help people.”
Joel Odom is the youngest person to run for Charlotte mayor. Odom was 20 years old then. He died this week at 22. I’m talking to his great grandmother and some of the people touched by his drive to change the city.

Joel Odom was an inspiration to us all. His commitment to our city and civic engagement was unwavering and proof that you’re never too young to step up and lead. He will be missed. May he rest in power.

Today I lost someone I knew quite well through my formative high school years. I will remember him forever and I want to share why.

As a new face in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Youth Council, Joel Odom, was a warm, welcoming person, but most importantly - a leader.

Use this lesson to have your students learn about the roles and responsibilities of the 15 executive departments by hearing from each of President Biden's nominees. #apgov #hsgovchat

#NEW @ 5:30: As thousands return to the classroom & thousands continue learning from home-I sat down w/this group of students to hear how they're doing. I also spoke with @mghayes24 about what @CharMeckSchools' efforts to ensure is doing to ensure students don't fall behind.

We've launched our 2040 Comprehensive Plan Virtual Open House, an interactive experience where participants can view and comment on the plan.

The experience is available in 100+ languages and accessible 24/7.
