Mark Molli, associate director of the Center for Civic Education, spoke with fifteen international participants as part of the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) hosted by the U.S. Department of State and the Institute of International Education. The IVLP group focused on the goal of promoting civic engagement, exploring the legislative framework necessary to support civic engagement, and providing insight into how the United States engages youth in civic participation.
Molli highlighted the Center’s work to promote an enlightened and responsible citizenry, including its work at the national level to promote the Center’s programs with Congress and the administration.
Participants from all over the world attended the program and brought expertise from a range of professional fields, such as education, medicine, and human rights activism.
