Civic Life Project

Civic Life Project was founded by Emmy Award-winning filmmakers and educators to use the power of digital storytelling to engage and inform the next generation of citizens. Since its creation in 2010, Civic Life has overseen the production of more than 100 students produced films and has produced the National Youth Film Challenge since 2015.
