Leadership_Civics_Students.JPGThe Citizens Campaign has developed a high school curriculum program called Leadership Civics which teaches students the value of civic engagement in a local environment, the rights and duties of citizenship, and the leadership skills that will empower them to become active citizens in their communities through readings, discussions, activities and a self-directed project. The course, designed for High School Juniors and Seniors, follows a structured curriculum that introduces students to the power centers of local government, citizens’ legal rights to participate and contribute to local decision-making, and how they, as regular citizens, can become community problem solvers. Building on this knowledge of local governance, students will then have an opportunity to practice these skills by taking on a leadership project.
