"...with Generation Citizen, I’m not just a leader in the classroom-- I’m learning to be a leader in my community."
“I realized that what I can do by myself isn't enough... But [with] GC, we thought about bigger ways to keep youth like my friend from getting involved in gangs...I'm 12 years old. Once I get to 15 or 16, and I'm in a situation where I see a problem that needs to be fixed, I'll be ready to lead my peers! Everything I learned in GC will be with me throughout my life. And I can share it with others who don't know how to step up and make their voices heard. [My Democracy Coach] is teaching me to become a better leader, so that I can teach my friends and my family and my community. And that's what being a leader is all about...with GC, I’m not just a leader in the classroom-- I’m learning to be a leader in my community as well.”
