Major Projects and Events
Citizen University organizes a number of recurring projects and events.
Civic Saturday: a gathering of friends and strangers in a common place to nurture a spirit of shared purpose, reflect and connect with the values and practices of active citizenship, reckon with and reflect on America's founding principles, and build civic fellowship to create new communal traditions.
Civic Seminary: a program that trains and prepares civic leaders to guide their communities toward a renewed sense of shared civic power and moral purpose. Participants are drawn from those deeply embedded in the civic life of their community and are dedicated to bringing people together, face-to-face, to revitalize the practice of civic gatherings.
Youth Collaboratory: a year-long program in which 24 students travel across the country to meet with leading civic innovators, gain civic education and understanding, and design and implement their own independent community projects.
Civic Collaboratory: a national network of civic leaders from across the political spectrum specializing in a wide range of areas, such as immigrant rights, veterans advocacy, civics education, voting reform, tech in government, arts and culture, worker organizing, and corporate citizenship. The network's quarterly meetings provide a platform for collaborative project design and civic innovation.
