Mikva Challenge believes young people learn democracy by doing democracy

and envisions a nation where youth enliven and improve our civic systems with their ideas and idealism. While Mikva Challenge’s three Chapters serve as our model sites and innovation hubs, our partner site model provides Mikva curricula, training, and strategic support to school districts around the country.
