Generation Citizen

2019 YBCA 100 Honoree

Generation Citizen champions real-world democracy education that equips all young people with the skills and knowledge to effect change, prioritizing students from communities that have been historically excluded from the political process. In the classroom, its Action Civics program inspires robust civic participation by inviting students to engage directly with local issues and institutions impacting their communities. Nationwide, Generation Citizen is activating a movement of young people prepared to lead our democracy.
