Civic Life Project is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to empower and advance young adult civic engagement through the use of video storytelling, nurturing Democracy for generations to come.
Through our Film Challenge we reshape ideas around civic engagement that impact community change, that inspires a sense of fulfillment, caring and optimism, and transforms what it means to be an engaged citizen.
Youth Film Challenge
The Democracy 2022 Youth Film Challenge goal is to provide a platform to enroll youth to tell their stories and effect civic change. The Challenge is a yearly event where the best films produced by young filmmakers are screened in communities, libraries and other venues.
Teachers and Filmmakers
Storytelling plays a crucial role in our understanding of the truth. Young people have the ability and passion to unearth the truth. Through the Film Challenge tools and techniques participants learn the art of video storytelling to exercise the power of their voice and become storytellers about issues that resonate for them, impact our communities and encourage civic engagement.
