The Civic Life Project is an alternative to the standard High School Civics Class.
Students learn the value of being active and engaged members of the community.
We collaborate with High School teachers to transform the classroom into a laboratory for civics.
Capture the imaginations of students who learn differently; every student discovers that education can go beyond the classroom.
The Civic Life Project brings professional journalists and filmmakers into the classroom to mentor students as they produce a short documentary film.
By the end of the year students understand that they have a voice and the power to transform their community.
Over the course of the school year students investigate an issue that they feel passionate about, and explore ways to improve their community.
Students take cameras into their community and interview community leaders, activists, journalists and politicians. They develop technical literacy through hands on experience.
