Strategic Plan 2020-2025

Through our new five-year plan, Generation Citizen aims to demonstrate how states, schools, educators and students can lead the way to a reimagined democracy: one that is just, inclusive, and responsive to all young people.

Five-Year Initiatives

Invest deeply in educators

GC will engage educators as leaders in Action Civics pedagogy and practices (including high-quality curricula and teacher training and supports) that are culturally responsive, anti-racist, strengths-based, and tailored to meet community needs.

Lead a national campaign to ensure access to equity-centered civics education

GC will engage in both state and federal campaigns to push for the prioritization of Action Civics education, while also engaging in robust thought leadership to ensure that Action Civics is seen as a necessary reform for the health of the country’s democracy.

Engage young people to be at the forefront of policy and advocacy change

GC will invest young people as Action Civics alumni to help lead policy and advocacy campaigns across the country. GC will also ensure young people are key stakeholders and decision-makers throughout the wider organization.

Imagine the results

As a result of implementing this plan, Generation Citizen will be poised to achieve even larger impact in the subsequent years, including the path toward achieving our most ambitious goal: the establishment of high-quality Action Civics education in every school in the country.
