Civics Unplugged's co-founders are 20, 34, and 38. Our team represents generational diversity – and we are committed to shifting power to youth in our community and across the nation.
The world is changing every day. Old paradigms, systems, and thought-models must be authentically challenged for us to design the future.
We invest directly in young leaders to build projects, explore systemic issues, and chase their passions.
Most young people are told that changing the world isn’t a sustainable career. Too often, our brightest youth choose career paths that are misaligned with their passions and the health of their communities.Our goal is to provide Civics Unplugged Alumni with the funding, mentorship, and community they need to start building social impact companies right now.Once a Fellow graduates, they join the CU Alumni Community where they are provided funding, mentorship, and a home to experiment, fail, and create.
Civics Unplugged’s Fellows have the opportunity to collaborate with our partners to create a brighter future.
