New Report: “An Inequitable Invitation to Citizenship: Non-College-Bound Youth and Civic Engagement”
PACE (Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement) is pleased to announce the release of it’s latest white paper, “An Inequitable Invitation to Citizenship: Non-College-Bound Youth and Civic Engagement.” One year ago, PACE board member Ben Binswanger, then the COO of The Case Foundation and now Vice President of the Skoll Foundation, suggested that PACE examine the topic of the gap in public and civic involvement between college-bound youth and non-college-bound youth. The philanthropic community had spent a vast amount of resources both working to understand college-bound youth and what might motivate them to become more involved in public life, but there had not been a similar conversation about how to engage the 50 percent of youth who were not college bound.
The authors provide ideas not only for funders, but for federal and state governments, schools and school systems, higher education, the military, political/advocacy organizations, community institutions, and businesses. The recommendations that the authors have concluded the paper with provide evidence of how much there is to do if we are to bring the voices and perspectives of NCBY into our civic, public and political life.
