Year 1 Round 2of the project

Abstract

Pace University and Vote 18 are teaming up in 2009-2010 to launch an exciting program for NYC high school kids to provide them with an in-depth experience in political literacy and civic engagement. The NYC Political Literacy Project brings Vote 18 together with Pace University students to provide high schoolers with a dynamic way to get involved with local, state, and national politics. The object is to teach civic engagement and literacy through direct interaction with real campaigns, issues, events, and people in each of the high school students’ local communities. Students will engage the events of their communities through interviews, reporting, dialogue and debate that will all be captured on the NYC Political Literacy Project website, soon to be launched. The site will be overseen by the Vote 18 student facilitators from Pace University.
