We are Kidizenship — a non-partisan, non-profit media organization for young people interested in civics and politics. We are where civics education, creative expression and community action merge. If you’ve been looking for a place that will amplify the voices of engaged teens and tweens, welcome! You’re here.
The name of our magazine, WATCH US RISE, connects all of our content. Each piece we publish tells the story of young citizens coming of age, overcoming challenges, and listening to each other while making themselves heard— all of it produced by Gen Z contributors and an amazing team of young editors.
We’ve split it into five sections:
ROOT — Ground your knowledge of the present in the stories of the past
LISTEN — Sharpen communication skills and engage in civil discourse
LEARN — Get informed about protecting and improving our democracy
CREATE — Envision the communities and country you want to inhabit
ACT — Celebrate the youth leaders who are making change today
We’ll publish four issues of the digital magazine in 2022, and move to monthly issues next year. You can follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok for more frequently updated content. Meantime, we’re so excited to finally share with you the premier issue of our first-of-its-kind, nonpartisan, youth-powered civics publication!
