  2. Alabama Civic Scorecard

    The Alabama Civic Scorecard, inspired by data from the 2015 Alabama Civic Health Index, is a tool for engaging young people in local, state, and national civic life. The Scorecard encourages increased youth involvement in political action, social connectedness, and public work. Educators and parents are invited to download and use the Scorecard free of charge. We also grant permission for adaptation, with acknowledgment, to accommodate educational objectives and local contexts. Those who share or send their completed and signed Civic Scorecard to DMC will receive a Certificate of Civic Engagement.
