Seattle CityClub’s Programs support our mission and engage you in unique and impactful ways. We recognize our state’s outstanding volunteers through the Washington State Jefferson Awards, shine the spotlight on exceptional youth civic programs with the Youth Civic Education Initiative, bring together voters to deliberate and discuss statewide ballot measures with Living Voters Guide and get you in civic shape with Civic Boot Camp. Visit the pages below to learn more about each Initiative.

Youth Civic Education Awards

Each year, Seattle CityClub presents the Youth Civic Education Awards - a unique recognition that showcases how youth across Washington state are engaged in their communities, building vibrant civic health in their schools and families, and strengthening our democracy. 

Civic Boot Camp

Looking for a unique “Seattle” experience? Need to grow your professional network? Want to learn how to make a difference locally? Attend Civic Boot Camp – in one day you will uncover Seattle’s rich history, connect with leaders and professionals, and learn how to get involved with the issues that matter to you! 

Civic Health Index

Our region has vibrant civic institutions, active voters, innovative social entrepreneurs and a strong culture of volunteerism and philanthropy. But like physical health, civic health requires vigorous and consistent exercise.

One year after releasing the Greater Seattle Civic Health Index report, we circled back to show how civic health improvement can and is being accomplished at our Annual Meeting: Collective Impact! 

Take a look at our Annual Report on Civic Health for an update on the Civic Health Index.

Jefferson Awards for Public Service

Seattle CityClub is proud to recognize community leaders each year through the Washington State Jefferson Awards. Regarded as the "Nobel Prize" for public service, this award honors “unsung heroes” for their volunteerism and action to make the world a better place. Attend this year's  awards ceremony which will be held on April 13th in Seattle, in celebration of Thomas Jefferson's birthday.

Unlike voter guides generated by government, newspapers or advocacy organizations, is created by the people and for the people of Washington State. It’s your platform to learn about candidate and ballot measures, decide how to vote and express your ideas. We believe that sharing our diverse opinions leads to making wiser decisions together.
