Actions Civics: A 21st Century Approach to Educating Youth for Democratic Participation with DeNora Getachew. Come learn how project-based civics education can equip our students with the skills, knowledge, and dispositions for lifelong civic participation in our 21st century democracy. Educating and empowering the youth of our country is vital to maintaining a strong democracy, and the League of Women Voters supports programs that provide students with the information, motivation, and skills to become informed voters and engaged citizens. DeNora Getachew is the New York City Executive Director of Generation Citizen, a national nonpartisan nonprofit dedicated to reinvigorating civics education in secondary schools in order to educate and empower the next generation of young people.
