A core mission of education is to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and inclination to exercise good citizenship and to contribute to the wellbeing of their communities and our country. The Civitas Community Impact Experience program is a promising idea because it couples the application of rich learning with the opportunity for students to discover their curiosities and passions while working to address authentic community challenges. I’m encouraged by the things that students I met who are participating in CCIE are accomplishing, both for themselves and for our larger democratic society.
The purpose of CCIE is to embolden courageous leaders to discover their unique talents, interests, and passions through inspired community projects, challenges, and opportunities.
Consultants, partners, and mentors all come together to witness students and community members pitching their ideas. Please register for the event here.
