Civics Day

Equipping all young people with a real-world democracy education to effect change


Civics Day

Civics Day is more than an event — it is an experience that positively impacts and empowers young people to become better leaders.

Step 1

High school student representatives are selected from each Generation Citizen class to present their real-world civics project at Civics Days

Step 2

Students present their real-world civics project to Community Advisors made up of other students, community members, business leaders, GC Alumni and public officials.

Step 3

Community Advisors engage with students: posing questions, considering the issues students are raising, and engaging in intergenerational dialogue about community solutions

Step 4

Students are awarded for their success via our Student Changemaker award

Step 5

During and after the project is complete, students spend time reflecting on their impact and role as a civic actor in our democracy

“Generation Citizen gave us a voice even though we are so young.”
