Subject Description

Youth Citizenship Programs

Programs that provide opportunities for students and/or school-age children and youth to gain a clear understanding of the process of government and to develop an appreciation for their approaching citizenship responsibilities. Some programs offer firsthand experience by allowing young people to establish mock governments, observe elected officials and public servants in their daily activities or participate in events like "mayor for the day" or "police chief for the day" which enable them to take on the duties of the office under the supervision of the person being replaced.
