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.

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

Next Wednesday (4/14) at 7pm ET, we will host a webinar for #APgov teachers to help prepare their students for the AP U.S. Government Exam in May. Register to attend using the link below:
