NEW! Civic Engagement(Fall 2020—ongoing)

Our new team will explore the following question: How might we encourage young people to vote and become actively engaged citizens?

In a perfect world, there are certain issues that wouldn’t exist. Yet, we definitely don’t live in a perfect world. We need a change in the status quo in order to create a more hopeful, sustainable, and equitable future for the coming generations. Young people as citizens have an important say and role in the world of tomorrow and it is essential that they take on this role and contribute to the development of their societies. Through civic engagement, we can manifest our passion for change, discuss community issues, learn how to share publicly our views with confidence, and actively participate in our democracy.
