High School Democracy Project

Thousands of high school students become eligible to vote each year, and we want them to become active participants in the American democratic process.

That's why we've created the High School Democracy Project, a six-lesson curriculum teachers can use to ensure that eligible students are registered to vote and become engaged citizens.

The curriculum begins with an overview of government and ends with ways for students to continue participating in the civic process. It can be used both in the classroom and in after-school programs. And since the lessons work as standalone pieces, they can also be used in adult education classes and other settings.
