Civics Education: Preparing the Next Generation of Informed and Engaged Citizens
Girl Scouts is proud to join bipartisan leaders, including Chelsea Clinton, to discuss the importance of educating and engaging today’s youth in civics to preserve and strengthen our country’s democracy. With only one in four Americans able to name all three branches of government, it’s important that we inspire youth to be informed, engaged, and civically minded individuals equipped with the tools to take action and make positive change.
The event, Civics Education: Preparing the Next Generation of Informed and Engaged Citizens, will be livestreamed June 3 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. EDT.
This nonpartisan event is an opportunity for community leaders, public officials, and education experts to consider how out-of-school civics programs can prepare the next generation to be involved citizens with a deeper understanding of their government—both now and for the rest of their lives.
