We the People: Project Citizen
"We the People: Project Citizen" is a civic education program that promotes competent and responsible participation in state and local government. It actively engages young people in learning how to monitor and influence public policy.
Cooperative Public Policy Problem Solving
Entire classes of students or members of youth organizations work cooperatively to identify a public policy problem in their community. They then research the problem, evaluate alternative solutions, develop their own solution in the form of a public policy, and create a political action plan to enlist local or state authorities to adopt their proposed policy. Participants develop a portfolio of their work and present their project in a hearing showcase before a panel of civic-minded community members.
