Supporting K-12 Leaders

In recent years, we have focused on providing K-12 leaders with support and resources to champion civic learning in their schools and ensure teachers can support all students.

A Message from Our Leaders

CIRCLE Director Kei Kawashima-Ginsberg and Deputy Director Abby Kiesa announce that they will depart CIRCLE at the end of 2024. A national search for new leaders will begin shortly.

Digital Equity + Infrastructure

CIRCLE is excited to take part in the Digital Equity & Opportunity Initiative, an effort to improve broadband expansion and civic infrastructure that supports youth in the rural South.

Upcoming Events

There are currently no upcoming events that CIRCLE will be hosting or in which we will be participating. Please check back soon!

Latest Research

What are we working on? Check out the most recent CIRCLE data and analysis on civic education, youth voting, how institutions can support more equitable youth engagement, and more.

In the Media

There should be a vibrant, data-informed public conversation about youth civic education and engagement: what's working, what's not, and why it's important. Our research, which appears frequently in major media outlets, helps to drive that conversation.
