We are an intergenerationally-led organization that equips our Fellows with the training, funding, and community they need to become civic innovators.
Civics Unplugged is an ecosystem dedicated to training, funding, and connecting young people who are using new approaches to solving issues in democracy, climate, our lives online, and so much more.
Our community of program graduates gets access to a suite of tools that help their personal & professional development for life. Graduates can get funding to launch local impact projects, be matched with mentors, find internships, and work to launch new initiatives at Civics Unplugged.
We are intergenerationally led – so our community also votes on all major decisions at Civics Unplugged.
Civics Unplugged Fellows live in all 50 states and 74 countries across the globe.
