Key Impact Results
Key Impact Results

Exposure to Generation Citizen was associated with increased overall academic engagement. Student participation in non-GC classes increased after completing a GC class.

Generation Citizen’s curriculum is project based learning (PBL).

In a recent study, PBL curriculum led to gains in social studies and informational reading. Students using the curriculum experienced a 63% gain in social studies learning, translating to five to six months of increased learning.

The approach also resulted in a 23% gain in informational reading, or an additional two months of learning for the year.
