MNA Releases Life Long Civic Engagement Guide


Lifelong Civic Engagement: A Guide for Michiganders is a digital resource that outlines lifelong engagement of Michigan residents and offers suggestions, as well as tools, on how to engage in the community. This resource is divided into sections based on a series of life stages (K-12; College Years; Non-College Bound Youth; Post Graduate; Aging Adults). Each section is designed to act as an independent guide for a specific life stage, as well as function as a cohesive document that lays out ways to civically engage in Michigan throughout a lifetime.
To accompany this resource, MNA has also created an activities placemat, the Learning How to Give Activity Mat, for children 5+.
