Programs and Activities
The Princeton Youth Program for Civic Engagement (“PYC”) works alongside community partners to provide civic learning programs and activities for elementary, middle school and high school aged citizens to help build the foundation for lifelong civic engagement. In addition to connecting youth participants with available civic learning opportunities in the community, we host fun, age appropriate programs that incorporate experiential and service learning, and focus on the foundation for strong civic engagement.
