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 8th graders! This semester, emerging leaders from MS across the community collaborated with HS students to learn about civic leadership, research issues they identified, and propose solutions. We are excited keep working with you into HS! #cltmeckyouth #kidslead

Join GenerationNation on May 19 as we hear from and celebrate student civic leaders who are transforming our schools and city for the better! Sign up to attend the May 19 5:15pm Zoom: http://bit.ly/youth519 #cltmeckyouth #studentslead

Field trip Saturday at NC Youth Legislative Assembly. We collaborated with youth from across NC to debate student bills at #NCGA. (Surprised that many officials, parents, and youth don’t wear masks or have social distancing there!) Safety issues aside, a great day! #cltmeckyouth

History should remember the incredibly 17 year old Darnella Frazier who had the strength and composure to capture the murder of #georgefloyd on video. Without her video there may never have been #justice.

BREAKING: In the death of George Floyd, a jury has found former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty on all counts -- second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. https://to.pbs.org/2QIgSPK

Thank you @BrdgAllianceUS @NCoC @BigTentNation for remembering @joelodom12 at this year’s Civvy Awards! (At 17-18 min mark.) @GenNation was so honored to receive the civic innovation award in 2019 and so pleased Joel was able to represent us there!

@trev_stev & I started compiling a list of unspoken rules & tips on campus for 1st & 2nd years since they haven’t really been on campus & here’s what we got. Add on more!

• you trip over a brick, keep going

• busses are every person for themselves. Especially on rainy days.

Seeing youth collaborate to solve community issues is the @GenNation team's favorite part of GYSD. During #GYSD21, youth will lead projects across Charlotte, many of which will include a civic participation student-to-student mentoring component! #CountdownToGYSD
