Citizenship Counts is a 501(c)(3) non-partisan organization that is committed to educating today’s middle and high school students on the tenets of citizenship, inspiring their pride in America and encouraging them to participate in community service. Their efforts are achieved by engaging students in our interactive, multi-disciplinary curriculum, which often culminates with the opportunity for students to engage in a community-based naturalization ceremony in their school setting. This provides the students with a unique opportunity to participate in the democratic process and builds a better understanding of the value and responsibilities of American citizenship.
Our goals are to:
* Educate students on the citizenship process and the role immigration has played in creating a diverse society
* Engage them in activities that help them understand what it means to be a citizen
* Inspire and increase their pride in their citizenship
* Challenge them to give back to their communities and be a good citizen
