Volunteer your time and talents to support GenerationNation, a Charlotte nonprofit organization that connects classroom learning with hands-on experiences to build civic literacy and leadership from an early age.

One of the best ways for students to learn is through learning opportunities that connect students with real-life experiences for college, career, and civic life. Through GenerationNation, students explore the community, share their own perspectives with leaders, present to public officials, cast their own mock votes, plan a city, follow news, build civic literacy, and much more. In doing this, they 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.
