The Democracy Project

Bringing Ideas to Action

The Democracy Project engages teens in civic action through partnerships with local libraries, community organizers, and Humanities Montana. This program gives teens the resources to effect change and know their role in an evolving democracy through direct participation. Students work for six months on projects they feel are vital to their community, ending with a public showcase.

Teens build skills like:

Critical and Creative Thinking
Information Literacy

Pilot Program Locations:

The pilot year for this program begins in Billings, Roundup, Missoula, and Seeley Lake. Participation is open to high school students and people under 19 years old in these communities.

There is no fee or application process—sign up by showing up.
