Overview
Despite the many issues facing our country—or perhaps because of them—young people have divorced themselves from the political process. This is reflected, among other things, in their persistently low participation rates in our elections. Nor have we succeeded in imparting to young people, especially low-income and historically marginalized communities, the knowledge and skill required for political participation. It is this civic empowerment gap that iCivics will address through this grant. As one of the largest civic education organizations in the country, iCivics will, through a variety of activities, focus on putting youth and equity at the center of a new movement to prioritize civics in schools.
