Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

iCivics envisions a nation where all young Americans are prepared for active and informed citizenship. To support this vision, iCivics provides engaging and effective online educational games and curricular materials for students and teachers.

iCivics is currently in the midst of a 5-year strategic plan anchored by 3 inter-dependent programmatic pillars:

1) To engage every student in America in civic education.

2) To deepen the impact of our resources on civic knowledge, attitudes and engagement.

3) To promote pro-civic learning policies, and, thus drive demand for quality civic education nationwide.

iCivics produces popular, high quality and effective resources which is the best driver of demand.

iCivics has a clear, ambitious, and so far successful multi-year strategy for programmatic success.

iCivics has a lean, yet highly qualified, dedicated and effective staff with a range of specialized knowledge. The growth in iCivics' reach and impact has far exceeded the growth of its workforce.

iCivics has the leadership and commitment to increase and diversify its revenue to keep pace with up to 5 million new students, as well as content and technological innovation. Since its founding in 2009, iCivics has tripled its annual donations.

The movement for quality, civic education for all finally has momentum, with record levels of demand, as well as interest from media and the general public.

We have not yet reached every middle and high school student in America (estimated 10 million per year).

iCivics has begun, but have not yet completed, adapting iCivics resources for the millions of ELL students in America and for more advance high school students.

iCivics continues to identify new areas of programmatic focus based on teacher feedback as well, including professional development.
