What is civic engagement?

 

Civic engagement encompasses a wide range of activities—service, service-learning, advocacy and activism among them. Civic engagement is carried out by people acting as citizens or community-members in a manner that serves the public interest. While this means that civic engagement largely focuses on citizens responding to community problems or strengthening public, non-profit organizations, the key to civic engagement is not activity but intent.
