Civics in Action: Programs and Resources
GenerationNation educates and engages K-12 students to succeed and lead in their schools, communities and nation.
Smart, fun, engaging programs tied to Common Core and other educational goals connect classroom activities with hands-on experiences to help students in school (civics, history, reading, writing and more), build civic literacy and develop young people as effective citizens and leaders.
- Educate K-12 about government, law, democracy and leadership through resources tied to Common Core and NC Essential standards to impact 5,000 classrooms, support academic achievement and narrow gaps.
- Directly engage over 100,000 Charlotte-area students in smart and fun educational experiences including mock voting and service learning.
- Build tomorrow's civic leaders through effective, hands-on learning opportunities connecting hundreds of high school students with government, leadership and community problem-solving.
Why does it matter? When students learn and understand how their governments and communities work, and the ways citizens and leaders collaborate to solve problems at the local, state and national levels, they build essential knowledge and skills necessary for success at school, in the workplace, and for life.
