Generation Citizen (GC) works to ensure that every student in the United States receives an effective action civics education, which provides them with the knowledge and skills necessary to participate in our democracy as active citizens. GC partners with districts and schools (middle and high)to align civic education with district priorities and social studies standards.  We carry out this mission by training teaches in our innovative action civics curriculum, and coaching them through facilitating the development of class advocacy projects and engaging students directly in their local political community.

Generation Citizen is a national organization founded in Rhode Island in 2008. Since then we have delivered our action civics curriculum to more than 50,000 students in seven states, becoming one of the preeminent civics education organizations in the country. GC is committed to core principals of diversity, equity and inclusion across all levels of our work. This includes prioritizing program delivery to historically marginalized communities and underserved youth. We ensure our action civics curriculum is equity-centered by creating culturally relevant learning environments that acknowledge the barriers to civic identity development and participation faced by so many young people.  


GC’s professional learning services seek to support investments in civic education, student-centered instruction, project-based learning, democratic classroom pedagogy and culturally-responsive teaching practices.
