This convening is made possible by the generous support of the McCormick Foundation.
National Action Civics Collaborative (NACC) is holding a convening on September 12 – 13 in Philadelphia, PA.
NACC is a learning network dedicated to the promotion of Action Civics, a student centered, project based approach to civic education that develops the skills, knowledge, and dispositions necessary for 21st century democratic practice. It was founded in 2010 by a group of community, school and university-based organizations committed to developing the next generation of leaders. Through the sharing of practices and tools, through research, dissemination and advocacy, and through professional development activities, NACC seeks to re-define the way civics is understood and practiced both in schools and in out of school time activities. Action Civics embraces the following principles:
- Action, especially collective action
- Youth voice, including experiences, knowledge, concerns, and opinions
- Youth agency, including action, authority, and leadership
- Reflection, especially as it enriches the process
