Project Citizen is a hands on civic education program for upper elementary, middle and high school students designed actively engage young people in the civic life of their community. The students identify a problem in their school or community, research the problem, propose a solution, and develop an action plan for solving the problem. Project Citizen students prepare a portfolio and have the opportunity to present it to a panel of evaluators in a local and state showcase. Successful projects have included an all inclusive playground, bike trial, dog park, and renovation of a track and field.

We the People is a study of the history and foundations of the institutions of American constitutional democracy. Its goal is to promote civic competence and responsibility among the nation's elementary and secondary students. We the People results in a culminating activity where students "testify" before a panel of judges in a simulated congressional hearing.
