Turn your local knowledge into local power

Government and civic education in the U.S. is sadly lacking. Voting is emphasized above all while engagement in legislatures, city councils, or other lawmaking and decision-making bodies is left to the wayside. KAPcivic’s training program provides foundational civic skills to anyone who wants to have a voice in their community. Our curriculum and trainers emphasize confidence-building and strategies that help any individual make their voice heard through the noise of government.

How it works

Knowledge As Power provides:

  • Trainer, translator for ASL, Spanish (inquire for other languages) for .5 to 1.5 hours
  • Electronic version of the KAPcivics curriculum that partners are free to use at any time
  • Hard copy civic education materials for participants
  • Projector and internet hook up

KAPcivics partners provide:

  • A quiet meeting location with enough seating for your participants
  • White board, flip board, chalk board, or other large writing surface
  • A staff member or volunteer to provide welcome and sign-in
  • Translation, if needed, for additional languages
  • Promotion for the training to your community or organization, including organizing sign-ups or reservations for the event
