This series explores the real-life application of core concepts of a democratic society. In each episode, the concepts are represented by stories of teens actively engaged in the democratic process. These contemporary real-life stories support a service-learning approach to teaching high school civics and show how citizen action in a democracy can improve communities and the nation.
