Generation Citizen empowers young people to solve problems in their communities as effective and engaged citizens.
Educate. Engage. Empower.
In partnership with the non-profit organization Generation Citizen, GC mentors at Northeastern University help youth to use their voices to participate in the political process and make a difference on issues they care about through the following approach:
EDUCATING students about grassroots organization and the political process, and informing them about the tools and the resources available to them to affect change.
ENGAGING students and mentors in community projects that use their civics knowledge and skills to actually take action on a student-selected issue.
EMPOWERING youth to use these resources to fix the problems that they see, leaving community change in the hands of the next generation of community leaders.
