We recognize that to achieve this goal, we will have to scale in ways above and beyond bringing our program to new communities.
To that end, GC has begun to engage in advocacy and policy work, building the demand for action civics, so that educators, philanthropists, and policymakers alike recognize the importance of educating young people to be active citizens. We wish to use the results and promise of our direct service program to make the case that action civics should become a staple of the educational curriculum in this country, everywhere.
End Goals To ensure that every student has a highquality action civics education, we suggest that it must become a core element of the public school system. As such, the longterm realization of our goal will consist of the following principles:
1. Action civics is a core part of mandatory student assessments.
2. More funding (philanthropic and public) must be allocated to action civics.
