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.

Excited to partner with @CharMeckSchools @CMS_IntBacc @shareclt @YouthService to increase student civic engagement across the community! Youth and adult leaders, schools, nonprofits and govts will collaborate to increase opportunities and reduce barriers to student service .
