Civic engagement is empowering — and it’s good for our democracy. But too many young people don’t know where their voices fit in — or, after historical exclusion and oppression, have turned away from politics as an avenue for change.
In this action-oriented webinar, we’ll share tools to rethink what civics is and what it can look like — and explore concrete steps that educators and families can take to help young people become informed and active community members.
