The Civic Education CenterProgram was created in 2016 to train teachers to guide students to identify a community problem, research to understand causes and potential solutions, and implement a civic service project.  This school year, we served 12 schools, 23 teachers and 1,200 students in 3 school districts in Fresno County.  Students learned American civic values, principles of democracy and contribute a solution on issues like racism, mental health, poverty, drug addiction, and water conservation.  Students experience responsible participation in our democratic republic, working with community mentors to organize civic service projects.  Students feel the power of engaging in democracy as their civic service projects have a positive impact on schools and communities.
