Active Citizenship for All
The EngagED project aimed to build the voice, citizenship action and learning of young people, and particularly those from socially disadvantaged communities.
EngagED spent two years investigating the ways in which young people express their civic identities and engage with their communities at a local, national and global level.
The EngagED project built the capacity of schools and voluntary agencies concerned with active citizenship education to provide opportunities for student voice, civic action and learning that reflect the preferences and contexts of young people.
The EngagED project ran between 2009-2011 and involved a partnership between staff from the University of Cambridge, the University of Leicester and Community Service Volunteers (CSV). The project was funded by the Society for Educational Studies (SES).
Engaging Practice, a good practice guide for engaging young citizens from disadvantage communities, that was developed as part of the project can be downloaded here.
