National Action Civics Collaborative (NACC)
Founded in 2010, NACC’s mission is to close the civic engagement gap by implementing Action Civics, student- centered, project-based, high-quality civics education, as a critical component in every school and youth organization throughout the country. The ultimate vision is that all young people are prepared to be active and informed citizens.
YOB was a founding member of NACC that worked in collaboration with five community, school, and university-based organizations concerned about the state of civics education in this country.
NACC members aim to:
Collaborate across member organizations to strengthen, refine, fund and grow our work through in-person conferences and via online/phone communications.
Promote and expand the practice of Action Civics, both within the civics education movement, and the larger education reform space.
Demonstrate the effectiveness of Action Civics in increasing student civic knowledge, skills, and motivation, thereby decreasing the civic engagement gap.
Train interested institutions, educators, and citizens in the philosophy, practice, and outcomes of Action Civics.
