Project Citizen students
Teaching democracy one generation at a time

"[t]he more you participate, the more you feel included in your community."

Middle school students from Hmong American Peace Academy wondered why there were no grocery stores in their neighborhood. And they looked for solutions.

At the Project Citizen state showcase, they explained how they would work with government officials to bring fresh food to poor neighborhoods.

For our summer fundraising appeal, we are asking you to donate generously to help the WHC support projects like Project Citizen.

“We, as young minds, will succeed!” said a student. If you saw them, you would have no doubt.

Will you make an investment in the future with a gift of $100 to the WHC’s annual fund?
