    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. The final product is a portfolio that may be presented before other classes, groups, community organizations, or policymakers.
