MAKE AN IMPACT
GW Civic Changemakers is a free five-week program for middle school students in D.C. Public Schools to develop skills in civic engagement that culminates in a project intended to have a positive impact on their community.
GW’s Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service has been offering a version of the Civic Changemaker program for the past six years. GW interns and leaders, who had three weeks of training prior to meeting with the students, provided mentorship and inspiration to students as they worked on their civic action projects.
Even in a short amount of time, the program introduced the middle schoolers to community involvement and showed that if they want to make change for a better future, they will have to work for it. And it gave GW students who will soon be entering the workforce intent on creating that change a chance to hear from some of those most affected.
In her first Convocation address, President Ellen M. Granberg challenged students to work together with a shared goal of changing the world.
