IN SUPPORT OF CIVIC EDUCATION
The Education Board Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides grants to organizations to support civic education and civic engagement of underrepresented youth in the United States.
Our mission is to empower youth to take active steps to learn about their civic rights and responsibilities and find opportunities to affect change in their society, local communities, and own lives. We believe that education and knowledge leads to active participation.
We posit that if youth KNOW how to participate in civics, they will DO so enthusiastically and continue it throughout their lifetime. That participation will create transformational change in their individual lives and the world as a whole.
