Civic Education and Seattle Youth (Close Up Foundation)

Recent elections have served as a reminder of the importance of voting and civic engagement. Youth voting trends and research studies demonstrate the ongoing challenge of engaging 18-29 year olds in the democratic process. This presentation provides context around the importance of civic education, and the work Close Up Foundation does with youth from across the country to prepare and motivate the next generation of leaders. Come and learn more about the importance of civics and the young people in our local community participating in Close Up (www.closeup.org).
