Civics Education

The Civics Education Advocacy & Awareness Committee works to promote the recommendations in the Club's 2012 report: Educating Citizens: A City Club Report on Improving Civics Education in Portland's High Schools (PDF); executive summary (PDF) also available. Key recommendations in the report include implementing a civic engagement partnership pilot project to encourage active citizenship among high school youth through partnerships between schools and the community.
