Strategic Plan 2017-2020

Through this three-year strategic plan, we will create the conditions for a broad national revival of civics education nationwide, using Action Civics as the centerpiece.

OUR APPROACH

Generation Citizen’s action civics curriculum is the crux of our work and of both our Democracy Coach-led and teacher-led models. The curriculum is action-based, aligned to relevant standards, and academically rigorous.
