Generation Citizen Project
By: Ryan and Michelle
The Beebe 8th grade has been working on a civics project called GC- Generation Citizen, since November, in our Social Studies class. GC is a non-profit advocacy organization that encourages young people to be more involved with their local community. Each class, or block, created a different project based on what they thought was negatively impacting Malden the most. Block 1 introduced the idea of lowering the voting age; Block 2 introduced the idea of making college more affordable; Block 3 introduced the idea of banning plastic bags and straws; Block 4 introduced the idea of preventing teenagers from vaping and potentially smoking.
