The Center for Civic Education is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization based in California. The Center is dedicated to promoting a responsible citizenry committed to democratic principles and actively engaged in the practice of democracy.
The principal goals of the Center for Civic Education are to:
- Help students develop an increased understanding of the institutions of constitutional democracy,
- The skills necessary to participate as competent and responsible citizens,
- The willingness to use democratic procedures for making decisions and managing conflict.
The Center offers free lesson plans about the U.S. Constitution, the role of citizens in a democracy, and voter education. 60-Second Civics is the Center's daily podcast and quiz that offers students a brief and entertaining way to learn about the U.S. Constitution and laws.
