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.

Remember, in North Carolina if you aren’t registered to vote yet you need to early vote to register and participate. You are not able to register and vote on Election Day. If you 17 but will be 18 by November 3 YOU CAN vote in next Tuesday’s primary. #GOTV

Students- ever think about emailing a former teacher to tell them about some goods news or accomplishment, but worry that we 1) won't remember you or 2) won't care?
Don't. We DO remember you and we LOVE to hear about the great things happening in your life. It makes our day.
