Civics 101

Brought to you by My School Votes (MSV), Civics 101 is a year-long training program in advocacy and organizing where high school students learn by doing. Student-leaders learn how to build campaigns to make sure their peers recognize valid voter ID, host accessible voter registration campaigns, and are prepared to tackle the issues that matter most to their school community. Each training connects to a specific action and each action is a chance to apply that training to a real world scenario. This is all in support of our mission to close the race and age gaps in voter participation and change the culture of civics in our schools. MSV: Civics 101 monthly trainings are for high school students and high school educators. Parents and school leaders are welcome to join!
