Democracy for Youth: A Civic Leadership Institute

The first ever Democracy for Youth Civic Leadership Institute will provide an opportunity for youth (grades 9-12) to discover their civic and moral compass, dialogue amid disagreement, and increase space for cooperation.


It doesn’t matter your age, American democracy belongs to you! And it belongs to those with different opinions than your own. You will both need to work together – as Americans – to help it thrive.

Join us on November 5th and 6th at the KC Library’s Plaza branch to:

  • Develop your civic and moral compass
  • Talk about important issues amid disagreement
  • Increase space for cooperation with fellow Americans
