Texas Civic Ambassadors

Texas

The Texas Civic Ambassadors (TCA) program seeks to identify and cultivate the next generation of civic leaders. Research shows that college-aged youth are less likely than adults to contact their elected officials, talk about politics, and participate in elections. We know that young people who gain the knowledge, skills, and dispositions required to participate in civic problem-solving have greater confidence in their ability to do so.

The TCA program prepares young people to be civically active adults through nonpartisan, youth-focused events and civic learning opportunities. The program features an intense 3-day civic leadership summit with a robust research-based curriculum, deliberative dialogue training, and year-long ambassadorships that foster reflective and strategic civic action.
