About Us

Educating and engaging K-12 students to lead


Today's students will become the leaders of our neighborhoods, schools, businesses, communities and nation. What, and how, they learn now matters.

Students need to know how their governments and communities work, understand the key issues and different perspectives, 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 that build civic literacy and leadership from an early age

From a child’s first vote to youth’s first community leadership role, GenerationNation educates and engages a new generation of citizens and leaders.
