Our events provide Civic Fellows with opportunities to enhance their knowledge of our political system in addition to local, state, and national issues. Through in-depth exploration of governance, policy and citizenship, Civic Fellows are exposed to varying perspectives. Civic Fellows are encouraged to ask questions and have ongoing opportunity to engage in open discussions in a safe and non-judgmental arena.
