Published Work

In accordance with our field-building philosophy, we have begun to publish our insights on our work and proposals to move the field forward. Above all, we believe that educating young people to become active citizens needs to become a vital discipline, which all young people engage in.

We anticipate writing more reports distilling best practices moving forward. Our initial papers are below:
