We are Youthivism (www.youthivism.com
), a student-led organization striving to expand access to nonpartisan civics and current-events curriculum in schools! In light of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, we understand that many districts have dismissed school, a decision necessary for the well-being of students. Unfortunately, this has left students feeling restless, anxious, and most of all, unable to access an educational experience critical to childhood. We want to fix that.
In partnership with SRVUSD, we have held seminars known as Pencils 2 Politics, at different local middle schools. In these seminars, we go over key current issues from a nonpartisan standpoint: environment, immigration, women's rights. Our interactive lectures and unique games have enabled us to establish great partnerships in the fields of civics education, all of which you can access through our website.
Students from grades 6-9 of any region, feel free to sign up for Pencils 2 Politics, Zoom Edition! No materials or prior knowledge necessary- just a willingness to learn and contribute, and access to technology:)
Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
with any questions or concerns you may have.
*PLEASE ENSURE to download the Zoom application to your devices prior to joining the meeting!
**Each session will be capped at around 35 students
