Mission

Student Governmental Affairs Program (SGAP) is a nonprofit organization providing educational materials and resources on U.S. government and civics to middle- and secondary-level students in all 50 states. Founded in 1993 by National Write Your Congressman, SGAP reaches more than 200,000 youth annually in schools across the U.S. The organization partners with teachers to provide them with supplementary classroom materials on the importance of civic engagement and active citizenry among today's youth. In 2015, SGAP was chosen as a featured content partner with Discovery Education's Social Studies Techbook, which reaches 3 million students nationwide. SGAP combats today's apathy and lack of resources with an interactive program that supplements classroom instruction. Students receive up-to-date news on pending bills, in-depth coverage of issues under congressional consideration and the SGAP student voice that allows them to share their opinions on the issues with their elected representatives in Congress.
