Educating and engaging K-12 students to lead
Today's students will become the leaders of our schools, businesses, communities and nation. What, and how, they learn now matters.
They need to understand how their governments and communities work, about the key issues, and how a new generation of citizens and leaders can make a difference. Current events, education trends, and learning opportunity gaps make that task more difficult - and more important than ever.
Charlotte nonprofit GenerationNation makes a difference. Smart, fun programs - including Charlotte-Mecklenburg Youth Council, Youth Leadership Charlotte-Mecklenburg, Kids Voting, and K-12 civic education - connect classroom learning with hands-on experiences to build civic literacy and leadership from an early age
