Get our youth involved!

Civic education upon the youth and diverse minority groups is crucial in the practice of expressing their ideas and exercising their civic rights. To effectively engage the youth and diverse groups we must help create a stronger, safer, and more inclusive civic engagement and participation opportunities. Communities who received high-quality civic knowledge acquisition are more likely to understand public issues, view political engagement as a means of addressing communal challenges, and participate in civic activities. It provides a chance to our community members to develop their civic engagement abilities, motivates them to take part in social, political, and economic decision-making, and gives them the power to make a difference in their communities. Civic engagement is more than just the participation in elections every four years. It calls for citizens who are morally and civically upright, participate in their communities, are informed and thoughtful, and are engaged in politics. Let’s help partake in active civic roles and contribute to the creation of more resilient communities.
