CIVIX is a non-partisan charity organization dedicated to building the skills and habits of active citizenship among students. Our vision is based on an observation shared by many; electoral participation among young adults is much lower than in any other age groups. To reverse this trend, CIVIX uses the education system as a springboard to connect with students under the voting age. We want to help them become engaged citizens who actively participate in a stronger and inclusive democracy.
To better meet the needs of teachers in Quebec, CIVIX established a Quebec division in 2017: CIVIX-Quebec. Its mandate is to create new programs aimed specifically at Quebec schools in order to prepare young people to contribute to their communities. The CIVIX-Quebec team aims to support educators in the noble and important task of teaching democracy.
