The Generation Citizen Associate Board is a group of dedicated young professionals from various sectors including finance, non-profit, consulting, technology, and education.

Generation Citizen’s Associate Boards support the expansion of GC’s mission in each region by providing local strategic input, facilitating relationship-building across new and current supporters, directly supporting GC’s program and policy efforts, and garnering local resources. They serve as champions and stewards of Generation Citizen by representing the organization’s aspirational vision of inspiring civic participation through the United States.

Members of Generation Citizen’s Associate Boards are emerging leaders who dedicate their own time, talents, networks, and resources to raise awareness and support for civic education and programming. In collaboration with each region’s Executive Director and Board, the Associate Boards serve to strategically raise the profile of Generation Citizen through leading networking, fundraising and community-building events and pitching in to support GC’s broader program and policy efforts.

Examples of GC Associate Board Activities:

● Chair our Events, Program, or Fundraising and Membership committees

● Host fundraising events such as virtual trivia nights and a Race to the Polls 5K event

● Judge GC Civics Day, where students present their civics projects at local and state-wide showcases

● Advise student fellows and support Civics Learning Week
