The high school civics elective course, “Civics for Boston Youth: Power, Rights and Community Change,” which HSTF youth successfully advocated to be included as part of the BPS curriculum, is listed as the fourth most popular social-science elective in BPS. In addition, more than 15 local community-based organizations collaborate with high school civics teachers to carry out community-action projects.
