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.
GenerationNation develops a new generation of civic leaders. Civic education, civic engagement, and civic leadership for all K-12 students.
