Youth-Centered Civics Initiatives to Strengthen Communities

Youth-Centered Civics Initiatives to Strengthen Communities -  Tuesday, June 22nd @ noon Mountain Time

Last summer, the Institute for Citizens & Scholars (C&S) launched the Civic Spring Project to provide six youth-centered organizations across the United States with grants to launch projects addressing pandemic-related challenges facing their communities and to promote local civic engagement during the 2020 general election. Through the support of each grantee, C&S also sought to address the gaps in our understanding of civic learning, reduce the barriers to equitable civic access, and build sustainability in the civic engagement space. C&S is eager to both share findings and seek input as we develop a case study and work to elevate the role of youth engagement in driving civic learning.

That is why C&S is partnering with Afterschool Alliance for an interactive webinar on “Youth-Centered Civics Initiatives to Strengthen Communities.” The event will feature CSP grantee the Kentucky Student Voice Team. In this panel event, we’ll further explore the variety of contexts in which civic learning can occur and—through the lens of CIRCLE’s evaluators and CSP grantees—dig deeper into what it means to become a youth-led organization. Discussions will feature the unique experiences of:

• The KYStuVoice team
• CIRCLE’s evaluation team
• CSP facilitators
