Democracy needs active citizens. At the Morven Park Center for Civic Impact, we teach students of all ages the skills they need to participate, share their voice, and make an impact.
We know a quality public education system is essential to a healthy democracy and contributes to the common good.
The Center for Civic Impact is just as vital, as it encourages active and engaged citizenship. Students who participate in Morven Park’s lessons have a better understanding of how to influence decision makers and have an impact on the issues they care about. The future of informed and active citizens begins with civics education at Morven Park!
Our programs focus on developing four core characteristics of an active, effective, and informed citizenry. These core principles are:
Know your voice matters.
Examine current and complex issues.
Make an Impact.
We offer K-12 lessons that teach the skills of active citizenship and create real-world opportunities for students to become involved in community and civic life, and Educator Programs to provide a vital support system as we empower the next generation to take part in our democracy.
