Charlotte nonprofit GenerationNation connects K-12 classroom learning with hands-on experiences to build civic literacy and leadership from an early age. Through GenerationNation, students learn how their governments and communities work, understand the key issues, and gain the knowledge, skill, and interest to make a difference as a new generation of active and informed citizens and leaders. Learning opportunities connect students with real-life experiences for college, career, and civic life.
