The Center for Action Civics is a project of Mikva Challenge, a non-partisan organization that challenges high school students throughout Chicago to be active participants in the political process through elections, activism and policy-making programs.
At The Center for Action Civics, we:
know that young adults learn civics best when they are actively engaged in democratic activities inside and outside the classroom
believe that our schools, neighborhoods and city can be transformed by the insight and expertise of these young civic leaders
know that teachers and schools are the centerpiece to developing future civic leaders, activists, and policymakers
