NH Civic Learning Coalition

In January 2021, NH Civics was connected with a Civics Roundtable group and reached out to other groups as well about starting a coalition for state policy in New Hampshire. All organizations were enthusiastic about the topic and the work. NH Civics was encouraged by the enthusiasm and support and its Trustees decided to raise funds to pursue this project. The Coalition's goals are as follows:

  1. To gather a group of educators and other stakeholders to examine the CivXNow state policy menu and to select one or more policies that the group agrees should be realized in order to increase and improve civic learning in NH. (2021-2022.)
  2. To communicate these policy priorities and gain feedback about them throughout the state through public conversations and a website. (2022-2023)
  3. To work with legislators and policy makers to propose legislation or policy in a nonpartisan manner. (2023-2024)

2022 Community Conversations: The Making of a Good Citizen

In spring 2022, NH Civics will host five community conversations throughout NH in partnership with New Hampshire Public Radio and moderated by Laura Knoy, former host of NHPR’s acclaimed call-in news show, The Exchange. These conversations will explore questions such as: What is a good citizen?  How are good citizens developed? How do good citizens come to be, and how can we support that development? and will provide an opportunity for community members all across the state to share feedback on the Coalition's policy recommendations.

A large portion of my day is spent on video calls helping parents to teach their kids the right material. Because of all that I’m constantly looking for great online resources to share with the parents of the kids I work with and I came across your NH Civics page while looking up social studies resources. It’s been a great help and had a lot of great sites I could send the kids and their parents to for some extra material to work with. Just thought I should reach out and thank you for putting it all together!
