Bridging the gap between Pace students and NYC Public Schools



This page serves as an internal resource for Pace University’s chapter of Generation Citizen (GC). Generation Citizen empowers young people to engage and become active citizens. With the help of Democracy Coaches (DC), we teach a course in civics action to high school and middle school students using a pre-structured curriculum. Students are asked to identify a community issue that they feel passionate about and develop an action plan to address the issue. The classroom teacher and Democracy Coach guide and support the students throughout their project. At the end of the semester, students are invited to Civics Day, a one-day event where they display and present their action plan to judges and other students who are part of Generation Citizen.


We also recruit Civic Allies who assist us in our mission in being active citizens. These individuals are grouped within the Education or Outreach Committee and assist directors in building resources for the chapter.
