At the Constitutional Democracy Project we believe in order to make democracy work - we all must do our part and be socially responsible for our communities and country. Often it is not until we are older that we 'get involved' but we know one does not have to wait.
When students as young 7-years-old learn they too can participate in our democracy, a sense of pride and awe comes over them. This is what we feel every day and want to pass on to all students and teachers across the Chicagoland area through our civics-based educational opportunities.
As a volunteer for the Constitutional Democracy Project you pass on knowledge based on real life experiences, you help develop students' critical thinking skills, and offer kids an opportunity to have a variety of positive adult role models.
Our project depends on volunteers like you to make its programs possible.
