RSVP Now: ADP/TDC Engage the Election 2016 Webinar on “Teenage Mutant Civic Hurdles: How Civic Tech Turns Students into Citizens” | Wednesday, May 18th, 2016

ADP/TDC Engage the Election 2016 Webinar on “Teenage Mutant Civic Hurdles: How Civic Tech Turns Students into Citizens” | Wednesday, May 18th, 2016.

icitizen is a community where you connect with your elected officials to be heard on the civic issues you care about. With icitizen, you create change at the local, state and federal level.

Over the country, higher ed. institutions face the same problem—it is difficult to get students to become civically engaged, and even MORE difficult to sustain that engagement through graduation and beyond. Why is this? Today’s students aren’t apathetic—we are simply asking this 21st-century generation to participate through decades-old civic channels that are cumbersome, inefficient and unrepresentative.

In this webinar, Alex Schreiner and Mark Keida of civic tech start-up icitizen will explore the “rising tide” of powerful new engagement tools driven by technology and designed to solve this problem. These tools create a simple but powerful two-way feedback loop between students and the communities they care about, both on and off campus. Join us as we demonstrate how to create informed, engaged and empowered students—while measuring the impact higher education is having on their civic development.

  • Speakers:
    Mark Keida, Director of Polling from icitizen
    Alex Schreiner, Partnerships and Outreach Manager from icitizen
  • When:
    Wednesday, May 18, 2016 at 2:30 p.m.-4 p.m. EST

ADP/TDC Engage the Election 2016 Webinar on “Demystifying Youth Voting – Why Some Young People Vote and Some Don’t” |Wednesday, April 27th

The Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning & Engagement (CIRCLE) focuses on young people in the United States, especially those who are marginalized or disadvantaged in political life. CIRCLE’s scholarly research informs policy and practice for healthier youth development and a better democracy. It is based at the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University.

In this webinar, CIRCLE’s Kei Kawashima-Ginsberg and Abby Kiesa will present research that will help the audience learn more about youth voting trends, particularly focusing on the 2016 election, what research tells us about why young people do or don’t vote, and what barriers, if any, young voters face at the polls.  The presenters will also facilitate a discussion about some promising practices on how to engage college students to get mobilized and mobilize others.  Some of the practices will go outside of the college campuses, for example, by connecting college students with high schools.  Audience participation is highly encouraged, both through questions and sharing ideas.

  • Speakers:
    Kei Kawashima-Ginsberg, Director from CIRCLE and
    Abby Kiesa, Youth Coordinator & Researcher from CIRCLE
  • When:
    Wednesday, April  27, 2016 at 2:30 p.m. – 4 p.m. EST
  • RSVP here.
