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.

"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."

Dariel Cruz-Rodriguez

"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."
