Spotlights: Institute for Local Government

Spotlights: Institute for Local Government
April 6, 2017 Stuart Foundation

School districts, cities and counties across California are engaging in innovative partnerships to provide real opportunities for young people to better understand their governments and their role in civic life. The Institute for Local Government will produce three case studies of successful programs – such as Sacramento’s Summer at City Hall – as well as a set of policy and practice recommendations so that other school districts and municipalities can draw from experience to form their own partnerships. This work will be disseminated through the Governments Engaging Youth network. We invest in this work because more communities can benefit from the example of strong programs to connect young people to their civic responsibilities and their roles in the lives of their communities.
