Generation Citizen is a national civics education nonprofit dedicated to empowering young people to become engaged and active citizens. We think our democracy is broken because our civic education system is broken. That's why we engage Middle and High School students in a semester-long "action civics" project, where students can focus on a real issue that they see happening in their community and take action to do something about it. Our program works best when classrooms can be accompanied by a "Democracy Coach" or college volunteer who can help facilitate the curriculum. If you love working with young people, care about the civic health of our nation, or are just looking for a meaningful way to engage with a group of people in the Austin community, consider working with GC.
