How Partnership Works

Project-Based Civics

Project-Based Civics

We partner with middle and high schools to Implement a project-based civics curriculum that engages students in their own communities.



We build partnerships with teachers and administrators to bring hands-on civics to their classrooms and schools.

Building a Democratic Classroom with a Pedagogical Approach

A Generation Citizen class models a democracy with a focus on including all student voices in leadership and decision-making. Students center their identity and lived experiences as they explore community issues and actively apply civic knowledge and tools to engage with local civic issues.

Culturally Responsive and Sustaining

Culturally Responsive and Sustaining

Community-based, experiential civics recognizes, affirms, and connects learning to students’ identities, cultural backgrounds, communities, and histories. Students engage in courageous conversations centering their lived experience as relevant assets to civic engagement.

Student Centered

Student Centered

Student are leaders of their own learning when developing and implementing their action civics project. Teachers act as facilitators and share power at each stage of the learning process inviting students to  plan, implement, and make decisions about the design and direction of their community-based experiential civics project.

Project-Based Learning

Project-Based Learning

Students engage in project-based learning by working in groups on a real-world civics project. They present their final product and reflection to their community during a Civics Day showcase event.

We have resources for teachers to help with project-based civics in the classroom.

Join us for our Civic Day events at the end of each semester⁠—like a science fair, but for civics!
