Who is Civic Spirit Day for?
We run two separate Civic Spirit Days, one for Middle School students (grades 6 and 7), and one for High School students (grades 9-12), and their teachers. Holding two separate days allows our team to work with local educators to tailor content to students’ needs in a more targeted, age appropriate manner that speaks to their interests as well as shared concerns and aspirations.
What are the details for this year’s programs?
High School Civic Spirit Day: This year’s High School Civic Spirit Day will be held on Thursday, March 14, 2024 at the Museum of the City of New York! Using the museum as a learning lab, students will explore the day’s theme, “Finding My Civic Voice,” through workshops, discussions, and hands-on projects.
Middle School Civic Spirit Day: Details coming soon! Please check back in a few weeks for further updates.
Due to generous support from funders, there is no fee for participating teachers and students. This is an in-person event that includes lunch, so the only cost to schools is transportation to and from the event.
What are the participant expectations?
