Generation Citizen (founded by Brown alumn Scott Warren ‘09) empowers young people to become engaged and effective citizens through direct political action. Through a skills-based curriculum delivered during the regular school day, students work with local leaders to fix problems in their communities. Through this real-world experience, our teens learn how to be active participants in our country's democracy. Brown volunteers (Democracy Coaches) teach bi-weekly classes in local middle and high schools.
This program seeks to recognize and memorialize the lives of those who suffered the middle passage as a result of Rhode Island's involvement in the transatlantic slave trade by organizing events and educational programs that focus on the impact of slavery and the slave trade throughout the state.
