Project Citizen

The Project Citizen curriculum is active citizenship at its best. It engages young people in cooperative, project-based learning while working as a class to monitor and influence public policy locally. Students identify a problem in their community, research alternative policy-based solutions, develop a class policy proposal to address the problem, and design a political action plan to convince public officials to adopt and implement the policy.
