Youth Engagement

How do we increase the levels of civic engagement in our state’s youth and young adults?

The vision for our state and the answers to our most complex challenges must come from the people of North Carolina. Who better to help us tackle these challenges than our state’s future leaders?

Throughout the Summer of 2015, the Institute for Emerging Issues (IEI) will be offering age appropriate programming for youth and young adults, third grade through early college. Provided with data and resources from across the state, groups will engage in an exercise role-playing a North Carolina Senator. Using the interactive touch screens to explore the big issues facing our state, they will share their ideas for how to best tackle the challenges in their communities.
