Building an engaged citizenry starts with civic education

SUPPORT

Copyright 2021 National Archives Foundation

The National Archives and the National Archives Foundation have formed strategic partnerships that enable students to interact with the National Archives and encourage student engagement in government.

For decades in America, civic literacy, individual rights, and historical understanding have been waning. The National Archives is uniquely positioned to change this trajectory by supporting educators across the nation to help inspire students and supply them the tools and skills to be active participants in our civic life.
