Volunteer your time and talents to support GenerationNation, a Charlotte nonprofit organization that works to develop a new generation of civic leaders.
One of the best ways for students to learn is through learning opportunities that connect students with real-life experiences. Through GenerationNation, students explore the community, meet with community leaders, build social capital, cast their own mock votes, plan a city, follow news, build civic literacy, and much more. In doing this, they learn first-hand how their governments and communities work, understand the key issues, and gain the knowledge and experience to lead, collaborate, and make a difference in civic life.
Opportunities include serving on a committee or team, speaking to a class or youth group, helping with special events, and more.
