Civic Spirit Day

At Civic Spirit @HOME, the hope and ideas of students inspired us to the core.

Civic Spirit @HOME was a virtual month-long "Civic Spirit Day" during this complicated time of COVID-19 and distance learning.

We honor the noble first-responder teachers and healthcare workers who are dedicating themselves daily to their civic duty.

Civic Spirit Day is a full-day gathering of student leaders from all our Civic Lab schools to connect and work collaboratively in designing solutions to civic issues.

At Civic Spirit Day, students have an opportunity to develop meaningful relationships and practice problem-solving across differences. This event convenes 200+ students and educators from throughout the Tri-state area, spanning diversity across socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, immigration status, and religion.

Civic Spirit Day 2020 takes the Census as our main topic of study…

Civic Spirit Day 2019 Highlights

Last year’s Civic Spirit day was a runaway success. We brought together 200+ students and teachers from across the New York Metropolitan area, where they forged new connections and explored their role as civically responsible members of society. 

Following the big event, in August 2019, a group of Civic Spirit Student Delegates were invited to present suggestions and ideas to NYC Service, Office of the Mayor, for how NYC can support youth engagement in service work.
