SVP Welcomes Generation Citizen!
We are thrilled to have launched our work with our newest grantee – Generation Citizen!
Generation Citizen believes that all students have the right to civics education that prepares them to be active participants in our democracy. Their pioneering action civics model takes students out of the classroom and into city hall, to advocate for issues that have a meaningful impact on their own lives.
This fall, Governor Baker signed a groundbreaking civics education bill that will ensure that every student in Massachusetts will receive an action civics education by 2021. Generation Citizen was a leading architect of this landmark legislation and is poised to be a leader in the design and delivery of statewide programming that will teach the next generation to exercise their voices in our democracy.
SVP is excited to be working with Generation Citizen’s leadership team as they navigate this moment of unprecedented opportunity, and to think together about questions of strategy and scale that will shape Generation Citizen’s growth in Massachusetts and beyond.
