The mission of the Civic Education Center is to inspire civility in America by creating opportunities for youth to learn and practice civic values and democratic skills.


Our Purpose

One of our greatest responsibilities is to prepare the next generation to meet the challenges they will face in the 21st Century, with a deep commitment to the rights and responsibilities of U.S. citizenship.
