In the Future


The American Spirit


Generations to Come


SGAP gets the youth involved.

SGAP is an interactive teaching aid that goes beyond the textbook instruction of government, civic and social studies. The program involves students in the organization and practices of the federal government, informs them about current legislation, encourages discussion of these issues and motivates them to express their opinions to their elected officials in Washington, DC. The result is a reduction of apathy among America’s students and the knowledge that responsible citizenship involves active participation. We believe the best way to ensure students will be politically active throughout their lives is to get them involved and to spark their interest now.
