Want to help develop a new generation of civic leaders?
Support GenerationNation, the only Charlotte nonprofit organization working to build civic literacy, social capital, and civic leadership among K-12 students across our community.
GenerationNation - proud winner of the 2019 American Civic Collaboration Award - effectively partners with students, educators, schools, local governments, organizations, community leaders, and others to educate and engage a new generation of civic leaders.
Your gift to GenerationNation enables students to:
* Learn first-hand how their governments and communities work;
* Understand important civic issues and differing points of view;
* Know how to find and use good sources of news and information;
* Build social capital, knowledge and experience for civic problem-solving and leadership; and,
* Join a diverse network of civic leaders who are working to transform their schools, neighborhoods, and city for the better...now and for the future.
Today’s students are getting ready to lead. What, and how, they learn now matters. Current events, education trends, and learning opportunity gaps make GenerationNation’s mission - and your financial support - more important than ever.
Give every student the opportunity to be a civic leader
By making a financial donation to GenerationNation, you can help to ensure that all students have the opportunity to gain the knowledge and experience they need to become informed, engaged, and effective civic leaders.
GenerationNation students are a diverse network of young civic leaders. GenerationNation programs include Charlotte-Mecklenburg Youth Council, Youth Lead Charlotte-Mecklenburg, the annual student election (still known to many as "Kids Voting"), K-12 civic literacy curriculum, teacher civic leadership development, and other initiatives that build civic literacy and leadership from an early age.
