Play the GREAT CITIZENSHIP GAME
When you play, everybody wins
CityClub’s annual Community Matters Campaign takes on important issues. This year’s theme is: What are the ingredients of great citizenship? Between September 14 and November 17, would you host a dialogue and help us collect community wisdom on great citizenship? We need your voice at the table! Here’s how you can get involved:
How does it work?
Our program is 60-minutes. We supply a facilitator and all program materials and you supply up to 20 participants at a location you designate. (If you have more, great; we’ll send more facilitators!) The program is structured as a social game. Participants will work together to design a formula for great citizenship and receive invitations to exciting civic programs and action opportunities leading up to and beyond this year’s election. They’ll also gain civic knowledge, connection and trust– key ingredients to boost their engagement and our community’s civic health. The participants may be work peers, friends, church members, members of a community organization, neighbors. The program could be open to your group only or open to the general public, per your convenience.
Why is it important?
CityClub and Guiding Lights Network are launching an initiative to revitalize civics education because, currently, it’s absent from most students’ school experience. We feel this is a serious problem for our democracy. We’re committed to advocate and develop programming for renewed civics education, but we need your help to create a smart platform for what it should look like. The community input we receive from this year’s Community Matters Campaign will directly inform that platform.
How can I host a program?
Simply email or call us at CityClub to signify your participation. We’ll send you a scheduling form and assign a facilitator.
We hope you can participate!
