Governments Engaging Youth Toolkit

Governments Engaging Youth Toolkit

The Institute’s Governments Engaging Youth (GEY) project seeks to support, expand and enhance school and local government partnerships to develop programs that offer our younger generation the opportunity to learn about public service careers, community issues and how to become a more engaged, civic-minded individual. 

This toolkit offers resources designed to help begin, grow or expand a youth engagement in your community’s programs by providing a framework, assessment tools and case stories highlighting the broad variety of options available to suit your community’s unique needs.

Overview

Engaging Youth

Resources and case stories to help local officials and staff develop and maintain effective youth commissions and to engage youth in civic and work-based learning experiences.

Overview

Civics Education

Children and youth become aware of local government’s programs and services in their communities through classroom curriculum, discussions with adults and everyday experiences.

As school and home are primary places youth learn about government structure and functions, the resources in this section are available to help explain the role of local government.
