We the People


Availability: Available

We the People curriculum provides the facilitator with a cohesive educational plan that will help youth begin the journey toward becoming active and engaged citizens.

The curriculum provides a roadmap of inquiry for the facilitator to guide intentional learning experiences with youth that will prepare them with the knowledge and competencies necessary for learning.

We the People is especially designed to prepare youth for a meaningful capstone event, such as the 4-H Citizenship Washington Focus conference. This curriculum could be easily adapted for learning about citizenship and participating in a capstone event on the local, state or national level.
