Chances are that there’s something happening in your community that bothers you and you’ve done nothing about it. Most of us could stand to be a bit more engaged in our democracy, but it’s harder and harder to get yourself engaged as you get older. That’s why Generation Citizen wants to start while kids are in high school. It’s a Boston, MA based non-profit that “teaches teenagers direct political action through an innovative in-class curriculum” where “students work with local leaders to fix local problems.” These classes are taught by “near-peer college Democracy Coaches” (college student volunteers) alongside secondary school teachers.
A broken democracy is a societal problem. To fix it, you need a lot of people working together. That’s the goal of Generation Citizen. And instead of just teaching students how they can improve our communities and the political systems behind them, they get students to put what they learned into action. You can get the details on how GC’s programs do this here, but the really interesting read is the organization’s stories. If you find those inspiring, take a look at Generation Citizen’s Idealist page. Right now they have job postings for an Operations Associate and a Boston Program Associate. You might also want to check out their volunteer Democracy Coach positions.
