About

If you want young people to be engaged, active citizens, now’s your chance to help make it happen. The Gen2Gen campaign and Generation Citizen are teaming up to pilot a trailblazing new intergenerational civics project -- and are now recruiting volunteers over 50 to serve as Democracy Coaches at a public high school in Hyde Park.

This fall, coaches will help young people engage in direct political action through activities including co-leading classes, supporting students in small-group work, talking about your own civic engagement experiences, connecting students to local community leaders, and doing outside research to support your students’ advocacy project.
