SPONSOR YOUTH CIVIC ENGAGEMENT
Teaching our youth to be informed, responsible citizens is a vital, long-term solution to current political and societal dysfunction. Studies show that civic health will be a key factor in the development of our community’s future economic health. Yet, there are still large civic participation gaps, and marginalized populations continue to be grossly underrepresented, while the kinds of high-quality civic learning experience necessary to promote civic readiness is distributed in favor of affluent students. As a result, underrepresented youth are not only unprepared for the most basic civic participation (voting and understanding how powers are divided), but they do not acquire the broader skills necessary for them to advocate for themselves and others on matters of public relevance. Reversing this inequity is critical, making this a time of unparalleled necessity for civic renewal.
