Developing a new generation of civic leaders.

Through GenerationNation, students learn first-hand how their governments and communities work; understand important civic issues and differing points of view; know how to find and use good sources of news and information; build social capital and experience for civic problem-solving and leadership; and, join a diverse network of civic leaders who are working to transform their schools, neighborhoods, and city for the better…now and for the future.

The #MeckBOCC is holding a special joint meeting with the @CharMeckSchools Board tomorrow at 2 p.m.

Welcome CMS Board of Education Student Advisor, Gabriel Schuhl!

Gabriel was elected as the student advisor to the Board of Education in November 2019. He is a native of Charlotte and a junior at Ardrey Kell High School.

Proud of and excited for Quentin as he launches! It was great working with Q when he was a @DubCLions student leader and now as #gennationalumni ... and we can’t wait to hire him to photograph today’s young civic leaders! 👏🏾📷🙌🏾#cltmeckyouth #socialcapital
