OUR PROGRAMSGeneration Citizen’s Action Civics curriculum is the crux of our work. The curriculum is action-based, aligned to state standards, and academically rigorous.
Over the course of GC’s in-class program, students choose an issue they care about, develop a focused, strategic plan to address the issue, take real action, and then reflect on their successes, challenges, and plans moving forward.
The Generation Citizen Community Change Fellowship (CCF) is a unique opportunity for high-performing GC high school alumni to continue their community engagement after the semester, in a professional political environment.
To ensure every student in the United States receives an effective Action Civics education, GC works directly with teachers and administrators to support them in leading Action Civics in their classrooms and on their campuses.
Kick Start Action Civics (KSAC) is a free online learning platform for educators interested in taking the first steps to learn about how to facilitate Action Civics in their classroom. KSAC guides educators through multiple interactive and relevant learning modules which introduce processes and best practices in the discipline.
