disrupting the status quo

Creating COnversations fOr Our future.

Citizen Discourse provides a safe online and in-person space for young people to express themselves and engage in civil discourse so that we can create a kinder, better-informed, and more engaged society.

CITIZEN DISCOURSE CREATES SPACE FOR MINDFUL WRITING AND CONVERSATION

Teens rely on social media platforms that are often superficial or hostile, leaving little opportunity for self-expression and engagement in conversations that matter.

Citizen Discourse is a kinder, safer, and more nurturing learning environment for young people to access their voice, improve critical thinking, strengthen emotional learning, define their purpose, and create cross-community connections among their peers and mentors, encouraging productive civic engagement and action-oriented positive change.
