Civic Health Webinar hosted by Connecting Young Nebraskans

We would like to thank everyone who attended the 2015 Civic Health webinar. If you were unable to attend, but are interested in learning more about this project, we invite you to enjoy a recording of the webinar.

Did you know that the youngest Nebraskans are consistently participating the least when it comes to civic engagement? The first-ever Civic Health Index for Nebraska shows that Millennials are the least likely of any age group to do things like volunteer, register to vote, show up to the polls, or contact public officials. However, the new report also shows that young Nebraskans have the potential to powerfully strengthen their communities.

To address this issue, Connecting Young Nebraskans is hosting an educational webinar with the Nebraska Civic Health Partnership on Tuesday, August 4th from noon to 1:00 pm. In addition to sharing information about the 2015 Nebraska Civic Health Index, the webinar will be a place to discuss practices for engaging young people in their communities. The Nebraska Civic Health Partnership is also releasing information about a new Civic Health Ambassador Program, providing an opportunity to connect with community leaders from across the state while improving civic engagement among local leaders.

Nebraskans for Civic Reform started the Nebraska Civic Health Partnership to bring together non-profits, educational institutions, and foundations dedicated to strengthening civic engagement. The Nebraska Community Foundation, Nebraska Public Policy Center, UNO Service Learning Academy, the UNL Center for Civic Engagement, and the Nebraska State Bar Foundation have gathered to document civic health through the 2015 Civic Health Index, and serve as civic health coaches to improve civic health in the future.
