Mikva Challenge

We believe young people learn democracy by doing democracy and envision a nation where youth enliven and improve our civic systems with their ideas and idealism. Mikva is helping build an educational movement that provides powerful Action Civics learning opportunities to young people across the country with a specific focus on marginalized youth, BIPOC youth and under resourced school districts.  Mikva’s national goal is to serve as a catalyst for bringing high quality, Action Civics to school districts nation-wide.

Mikva has three Chapters that serve as our model sites and innovation hubs. Our partner sites provide Mikva curricula, training, and strategic supports to school districts around the country.

How we partner nationwide

Our Partner Site model provides Mikva curricula, training, and strategic support to school districts around the country. Learn about how your district can collaborate with Mikva Challenge to build transformative youth voice and Action Civics infrastructure.

Mikva Challenge has helped me connect with the constituents that matter most to me and my office—students. Listening and working with Mikva youth leaders has helped me implement policies and programs that truly center youth needs.
