OUR IMPACT

Civics Unplugged's impact goes far beyond the students that graduate from our Fellowship.

Funding and support from CU allows our Alumni to impact thousands in their communities and the country.

Within the next two decades Civics Unplugged alumni will not only have become leaders in existing systems, but will become the first Chief Civic Officers in companies, and the first Chief Innovation Officers in cities across the globe.
