“Youth as E-Citizens: Engaging the Digital Generation” maps the online political and civic activities of Generation Y and documents youth involvement on the Web. According to the report, an online youth civic culture, largely unnoticed by the general public, has taken root on the Internet and is fostering Generation Y’s participation in U.S. politics and community affairs.
The 155-page report, Youth as E-Citizens, identifies and analyzes almost 400 websites, created for and in some cases by young people, that engage youth in civic activities. There is also an executive summary. An “online tour” of this new online youth civic sector provides links to seventy-five websites that vividly embody this new digital civic landscape.
