Grants to this Grantee
for engaging young people in the improvement of civics education  
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.
for support of the planning of the Democracy at the Crossroads: Moving Forward project  
iCivics exists to reimagine civic education. There is growing momentum in American for comprehensive, innovative, and equitable civic learning. This grant will enable iCivics will build on the work accomplished at the "Democracy at a Crossroads Summit" to move the field of civic learning forward to develop comprehensive state policy, teacher and parent advocacy, and civics 2.0 in K-12 education.
