In this program, youth participants receive an education about their community’s political geography, demographics, and voter turnout. Additionally, participants learn to identify and define a public policy problem. Participants then learn how to make the system respond by developing “clout.” Finally, participants learn about the components of a “Citizen’s Toolkit.”
Upon successful completion of this course, students will receive an officially signed certificate of completion.
Learning outcomes include:
- Become familiar with their community
- Learn who makes decisions in local government
- Learn how to influence political systems
