What We’re Reading: Millennials Civic Health Index
The Millennials Civic Health Index, recently released by four of the top civic organizations in the country, paints a comprehensive picture of young Americans 18 to 29 (AKA Millennials).
The study challenges commonly held beliefs about a generation of young Americans whose votes played a critical role in November’s presidential election. The report highlights the diverse ways in which Millennials are taking action in their communities beyond the voting booth, online and offline, across different regions of the United States.
The report, produced by the National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC), The Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) at Tufts University’s Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service, Harvard University’s Institute of Politics, and Mobilize.org, begins with a glass-half-full/glass-half-empty introduction to the civic health of Millennials and presents positive statistics and areas for growth.
