Club - Generation Citizen
Generation Citizen NU, a service-based student organization at Northeastern University, aims to expand democratic participation among youth populations that have been historically underrepresented or actively excluded from the political process.
To do so, Generation Citizen NU brings college students into Boston public high school classrooms to facilitate an “action civics” project during civics or social studies classes. Through this project, the high school students learn through making real change in their own communities. At the end of the semester, they have the opportunity to present their progress at Civics Day at the Massachusetts State House.
Generation Citizen NU also connects mentors with the campus community, developing networks of support with like-minded student organizations committed to raise awareness about community issues and effect community change.
