Programs and Resources
GenerationNation educates and engages K-12 students to 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 build civic literacy and leadership from an early age.
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.
