Civics Education


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.


Picture Yourself in Local Government

The Institute for Local Government provides the revised Picture Yourself in Local Government (PYLG) curriculum to cities, counties, special districts and educational institutions to use in classroom and municipal settings to convey essential information about local government.
