The journey to becoming a civic innovator is not something that happens over the short span of a Fellowship program, but rather over many decades.
Once a Fellow graduates, they join the CU Alumni Community. We've brought together a group of funders, partners, and mentors dedicated to supporting our community throughout their changemaking journey.
CIvics Unplugged Alumni can apply for funding to support their local civic innovation projects.
Civics Unplugged's network of partners, CEOs, Investors, and Government Officials has committed to mentoring our Alumni over the next decade.
Graduates of the Fellowship can apply to be matched with paid summer internships through CU's partner network.
Each week, Civics Unplugged staff and partners host niche workshops and specialized training (i.e. in Climate Tech or web3) programs for alumni.
CU's program directors host workshops three days a week, covering Supreme Court cases, new legislation, the principles of government, technology, and more!
Once you graduate from University, we work hard to connect you with our network of CivTech founders and investors, so you can join the Civic Innovation workforce.
"Civics Unplugged has broadened my perspective on events, people, and life in general. I live in a rather small bubble, and so connecting with fellows across the world reminded me to take into account multiple situations and views before acting."

"CU has prompted me to look deep into my desires and skills to future cast and identify what careers I can pursue, what lifestyle I want to achieve, and what my definition of success looks like. With this, CU empowered me and made me feel unstoppable."
"At Civics Unplugged, I met amazing people, many of whom I'm lucky enough to call very close friends. I've developed such close relationships with my peers that I honestly cannot imagine my life without their support."
"Civics Unplugged is a second home for me. I often find myself most comfortable in the CU Community, where I've met lifelong friends and mentors. The Fellowship also gave me long lasting opportunities that I would not have been able to receive at my public high school with limited resources."
"The Fellowship enabled me to launch a career in social-change. 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."
