Taking Action: Organizing a Candidate Forum

How to organize a candidate forum


Mikva Challenge believes the best way to learn civics is to “do civics.” This Action Civics approach centers on giving students opportunities to take action during the election season. In this section, we offer suggestions to help you facilitate and reflect on these powerful learning experiences with your students. We encourage you to choose actions that best fit your context (e.g., student age, geography, time) and by all means, engage in multiple actions! As with all experiential learning for youth, student safety is paramount. Take care, if necessary, to ensure that students are safe.
