The Paul Simon Public Policy Institute is committed to civic education efforts both for young people and the community. We think that it is vital for the health of our democracy to prepare our young people to be competent and engaged citizens.
Informed and empowered citizens understand how to effect change when problems arise, they know how to get involved in their community, and run for elected office. Responsible citizens can see beyond their own personal interests and demand good ethics in government and business.
