    Overview

    The Civics Immersion Program allows students to choose an elective course in argumentation and the use of evidence. Taught by professors across the nation, this experience is designed to support and empower high school students to look beyond problems and focus on solution-oriented action. Students will dig deeper into the most pressing issues we face today and apply lessons learned to solve real-life problems in their communities.

    In the Civics Immersion Program, students have the chance to build a community of peers and mentors committed to civic engagement and action. By the end of the program, students will: - Be better equipped to actively participate in government and politics at the national, state, and local levels - Be able to lead and participate in civil discussions with people from different backgrounds and perspectives - Demonstrate effective leadership skills, helping students inspire others to become change agents in their communities - Develop and hone essential critical thinking skills and be ready to address current and future political, economic, and social issues facing your community and society-at-large - Be better suited to succeed in secondary and post-secondary education environments
