Empowering Voters. Defending Democracy. 


Welcome to LWVSKC's six-part turnkey interactive civics experience to educate and engage youth and communities in our democracy. This program is designed for Washington State high school teachers to enhance their civics instruction but can easily be used by community colleges and community groups seeking to promote civics learning with the aim of developing leadership skills and the habit of voting.

What’s included? The program has two major components:
  • The Fighting for The Vote component consists of three modules with interactive exercises to examine the history of voting, explore the demographics of who is (and isn’t) voting in recent elections, and to give students practice in making informed choices when voting.
  • The Fighting For Change component focuses on issues identification, the characteristics of leadership, and how an individual can lead at any age. The three modules in Fighting For Change provide interactive exercises to engage students.
Civics and You! is free and easy to use - everything needed to teach the modules is included:  presentations, scripts, and supporting materials for exercises. 

Inglemoor HS teacher Alexander Baker reports, 
"I've taught Civics for almost 10 years and the Civics and You! lesson modules from the League of Women Voters are the most exciting instruction I have come across. The modules are ready to use, designed to be interactive, and they inspired greater participation in the Candidate Forum and Mock Election in my 12th grade classroom.”

This and other resources from the LWVSKC have given her students a real sense of their own power as citizens and future voters. You, too, can access these free resources and increase your students' understanding of and involvement in the democratic process.
