What is Project Citizen?

Project Citizen can be used at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels. It can be taught in the classroom, through extracurricular clubs, or through youth organizations. 

Project Citizen is a hands-on approach for students to learn about government and how to participate in their community's civic life. Students work as a team to identify a public policy problem in their community, identify and evaluate alternative solutions, choose their preferred policy, and prepare and present a portfolio explaining their project at a public showcase. Students often continue forward and work together to implement their proposed policy.

Through Project Citizen, students develop an appreciation for democratic values and principles and recognize that they are are important members of civic society.
