4-H Citizenship: Government Is Us! A Civic Engagement Curriculum for Youth Groups

April 16, 2015

This curriculum is designed to help 4-H'ers and other young people aged 13 to 19 explore citizenship and civic education. Its goal is to help teens develop the attitudes, knowledge and skills they need to be active citizens and practice what they learn in their own communities. Citizenship is not a spectator sport, and the learning activities in the book get youth and adults more involved, cause them to think critically about their values and beliefs, and prepare them to be active citizens in the future. Developing the in-depth understanding of community issues and the political process provided by "Government Is Us" empowers young people and motivates them to work for change in their communities.
