YOUTH become part of the democratic solution through Democracy Camp,
It’s a weeklong in-person intensive engaging diverse teens from across NYC in analyzing the history and current state of our democracy, investigating specific challenges of our times (for ex, voting rights or racial injustice), designing Democracy Proposals to tackle the challenges you’ve identified, making recommendations about how to work across differences to create inclusive civic solutions, and creating action plans to implement with peers over the 2022-23 school year.
Democracy Camp will be conducted at the New York Society for Ethical Culture at 2 64th St in Manhattan. It will start with an orientation and community building on Tues, June 27 from 4:30-7:30PM and will then run the rest of the week from 11AM-5PM through Sat, July 1 with an extended evening of fun and festivity on Thurs, June 29 from 5-8PM. Participants will qualify for a stipend of up to $250 for full and engaged participation. Apply ASAP at www.tinyurl.com/YVoteApp
