We're tired of hearing that nothing can be done about climate, gridlock in Washington, big tech, and the dozens of other issues plaguing our society. We train leaders that are capable of creating better systems, not just perpetuating broken ones.
The Civic Innovators Fellowship is a 3-month civic leadership program that prepares high schoolers with the knowledge skills and resources to strengthen their communities and beyond.
Alumni of the Fellowship program are brought into a life-long community and offered a range of opportunities that help them steadily gain confidence and experience to become an effective civic innovator.
The Community provides: internships, jobs, mentorship, networking, specialized training programs, and grants for learning and project acceleration. These opportunities can be accessed over the course of many years.
"Civics Unplugged connected us with the world unlike any other program or organization I have experienced. I also learned more about myself than I would have ever expected. What's more is that the goals and expectations that my peers and I set for ourselves and each other laid the roadmap for our work over the next decade to build the future."
"Civics Unplugged has been a rare source of hope for my generation as we look to take on responsibility for building the future. As a 2020 Fellow, the Fellowship cultivated a sense of mutual understanding among my peers that we face a lot of problems, and that it's much better to face them together."
"Youth have been on the front lines of system change and community empowerment for decades. While our education system teaches the youth to wait their turn, Civics Unplugged accelerates the projects, potential, and power of our generation to build a brighter future."
