The Center for Civic Participation offers training in citizen engagement and advocacy. We offer seminars, workshops, institutes and other programs customized to meet the needs of our users.


Citizen Empowerment. Not Just Education

For CPP civic participation is about citizen engagement, and citizen enegagement is about citizen empowerment and inspiring citizens to not just consent to be governed, but to take an active role on our self-governance.

Our mission is to educate AND activate citizens so they are better equipped to take a place at the decision-making table at any level: local, state, national, or corporate.
