Generation Citizen is a national organization working to transform civics education so that young people are equipped and inspired to exercise their civic power. It partners with school districts to provide real-world competency-based civic learning experiences for students while advocating for policies that ensure these students receive an equity-centered civics education. This grant takes the next step in an Equity in Civics field-building initiative by convening a national steering committee to provide guidance to school districts and civics education organizations, create toolkits and other resources that civics education groups can use to promote equity in civics education, and host conferences to promote equity in civics education.

for support of organizational diversity, equity and inclusion capacity to advance educational equity
for a research-practice partnership to test theories of diffusion and scaled impact
Generation Citizen, which promotes civics education for all U.S. students, will form a new research-practice partnership with Oklahoma City Public Schools and Tufts University’s Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement. This new partnership, called the Oklahoma City Education Research Alliance, seeks to scale collaborative project-based learning in the locale. This work will benefit school districts by presenting an approach that can be readily adopted in other places and by introducing new theory about the spread of innovative practices.
