Project Citizen

Empowerment, voice, and confidence are some of the most meaningful gifts we can give our students. Project Citizen is a project-based curriculum that gives students the opportunity to solve a problem in their community and be a voice of change. Civic Participation is the most authentic way for students to engage with concepts around justice, equity, and public policy, and this is the program that can make that happen in your classroom. Project Citizen helps students from upper elementary through high school build skills such as problem-solving, understanding how government works, gathering information, and working together to find solutions.

To add even more fun to the project, Classroom Law Project hosts a statewide Project Citizen Showcase at the Capitol at the end of every school year for middle and high school classes. A middle school winner of that showcase can go on to participate in the National Showcase.
