When will the Civic Circle launch?

What is the Civic Circle?

The Civic Circle is a Silver Spring, Maryland-based nonprofit in formation that will bring civics alive for very young children with music and drama shared in assembly and after-school programs.

Why the Civic Circle?

Americans lack faith in and know little about government institutions and those who represent them.

If we do not introduce children at a young age to the building blocks of civic identity we are missing a key window for passing civic values on to the next generation.

How will it work?

Both assembly and after school programs will be built around a series of civic values, each captured with a single word that grabs the attention of young children.
