About half of young Americans have never attended college. They are less than half as likely to vote and to volunteer as their college-educated peers. These youth have few opportunities to develop civic skills and interests. Drawing on a white paper published by PACE-Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement in October, 2009, An Inequitable Invitation to Citizenship: Non-College-Bound Youth and Civic Engagement, Jim Youniss, Professor of Psychology at Catholic University of America, and CIRCLE director Peter Levine will provide the latest research on non-college bound youth and civic engagement. The speakers will suggest ways that civic and human services sector organizations can be part of the solution to greater inclusion of non-college bound youth, while at the same time enriching their own missions, creating future volunteers, social justice advocates, and engaged citizens.
