  1. WE THE PEOPLE... THE CITIZEN & THE CONSTITUTION
    WE THE PEOPLE... THE CITIZEN & THE CONSTITUTION
    Outside The Classroom Civics Education Program For Urban School Students & Educators
    "We the People... The Citizen and the Constitution" is the most extensive educational program in the country to educate people, young & old, about the history and principles of the Constitution & Bill of Rights. Participants meet once or twice a week (during or after school hours) to review, discuss, debate, and prepare to become an expert witness on one of the six units in the text, then testifies in small groups before a panel of judges acting as U.S. Congressional Representatives. During this "Simulated Congressional Hearing" students are judged on content understanding, constitutional application, reasoning, supportive evidence for positions taken, individual responsiveness, and participation.
  2. PROJECT CITIZEN
    PROJECT CITIZEN
    Urban Civic Engagement Collaboration Program To Directly Address Community Concerns
    Project Citizen promotes competent and responsible participation in local and state government. Students or members of youth or adult organizations work cooperatively to identify a public policy problem in their community. They then research the problem, evaluate alternative solutions, develop their own solution in the form of a public policy, and create a political action plan to enlist local or state authorities to adopt their proposed policy. Project Citizen demonstrates the importance of being active citizens to participants by making them part of the democratic process. They really get a firm grasp of how local politics work. It is amazing to see the participants and their representatives engaged in a give and take of ideas that lead to visible outcomes within the community.
