The Center for Civic Impact
School Programs at Morven Park

We believe that all youth need opportunities to prepare and practice for lives as citizens in a healthy democracy. Our school programs focus on developing four core characteristics of an active, effective, and informed citizenry. These core principles are woven into each of our programs so that all students are equipped with the right tools to make their impact.

Knowing their voice matters.
Examining current issues.
Taking responsibility.
Making an Impact.

Programs teach students to take action to positively affect their environment, community and democracy starting as early as kindergarten and continuing well beyond high school graduation.
