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.

🙌🏾 congrats Hadiya! Proud of you and excited to see what you accomplish as you continue to move forward as a journalist and civic leader!! #gennationalumni
