This session will present examples of student civic engagement including the events or issues that inspired them, the policy solutions they may be pursuing, and the strategies they are employing to participate in our unique experiment in self-government.
This session is presented by the Equity in Civics Youth Fellows. You will have a chance to ask questions and hear directly from students about how they engage their community and what opportunities may lay ahead. Following their conversation, our civic experts will answer questions from the Q&A.
The Equity in Civics Youth Fellowship (ECYF) brings together a talented group of high school students from around the country to think globally, act locally, listen to others, and build coalitions. Fellows will utilize their lived experiences to shed light on how civic education can include student voices and become more equitable. ECYF is a project of iCivics.
