To most adults the word ‘civics’ conjures up boring high school classes where you learned about the U.S. Government and heard about how people a long time ago fought for their rights to vote. If you went to school in the 1960’s on average you attended three of these classes. Today only one civics/government class is required in high school in all 50 states. CityClub's Youth Civic Education Initiative was created to increase the visibility of civic education for youth, to reward excellence in existing civic education programs serving middle and high school-aged students and building a statewide network of practitioners and resources.
