Our speakers will be Caitlin Paul & Ron Susek from Generation Citizen. Generation Citizen (www.generationcitizen.org) is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering young people as agents of political change in their own communities. Generation Citizen wants to team up with people like you who have lived a full life of civic engagement and want to share your experiences with local high school students.
They place volunteers - called "Democracy Coaches" - into local school classrooms, to help youth take action on a community issue of their choice. Classes have worked on issues ranging from affordable housing and neighborhood litter to public transit and school policy. Democracy Coaches commit to roughly 4 hours per week, providing classroom support and coordination/research outside the classroom.
