Generation Citizen (NYC)

News Story

It’s Youth Engagement Week and what better way to celebrate than by learning how to engage youth?

On November 18, join Generation Citizen at Pace University for a discussion on Activism in Our Generation at 12:10 p.m. in Room E320 in One Pace Plaza. Guest speakers include Teach for America recruiter Joseph Picini and Generation Citizen founder Scott Warren, who will discuss youth involvement and how both organizations encourage civic engagement in young people. 

November 20 will be movie night with a screening of Waiting for Superman, Davis Guggenheim's documentary that reminds us that education "statistics" have names, following a handful of promising kids through a system that inhibits, rather than encourages, academic growth, at 6:30 p.m. in Room W609. 

Refreshments will be served at both events. 

Also coming up on December 5 is Grassroots Movements through the Decades, a look at four grassroots movements—civil rights, LGBTQA, immigration, and environmental—that had a tremendous impact on America. Generation Citizen is currently accepting materials from the Pace student body to be exhibited at the gallery. Submissions are due by December 2. Download the form here

Generation Citizen at Pace University is a chapter of Generation Citizen that works to encourage the student body to become active citizens.
