About Project Citizen

Project Citizen is a civic education program for middle, secondary, and post-secondary students and youth, as well as adult groups. Project Citizen promotes student interest and ability to competently and responsibly participate in state, local, and federal government.

It actively engages people in learning how to monitor and influence public policy. Participants work together as a class or extracurricular group to identify and study a public policy issue.

About the Project Citizen Level 1 Book

Project Citizen engages middle school students in proposing public policy solutions to real-world problems in their communities. Using ten clearly defined action steps, students learn the skills and knowledge they need to be active, responsible, and impactful citizens.

Students select a real problem or issue in their community, work together to come up with possible solutions, develop an action plan, and share their chosen solution in order to make real change that promotes the common good. Students also learn what public policy is, its role in our government and society, and how they can help influence what policies get enacted.
