Generation Citizen (GC) works to ensure that every student in the United States receives an effective action civics education, which provides them with the knowledge and skills necessary to participate in our democracy as active citizens.
As part of its core model, GC trains and places college volunteer “Democracy Coaches” in middle and high school classes to help co-lead an in-class, semester-long, action civics program. Through the experience, students develop a stronger sense of agency, learn civic engagement through real-life, hands-on, community action, and see that their voice and actions can have a very real and meaningful impact in the local community.
GC Bay Area currently serves nearly 1,400 low-income middle and high school students throughout San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley – along with other sites in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, NYC and recently launched in Central Texas and Oklahoma City.
David Moren is the Bay Area Executive Director at Generation Citizen, a Citizenship Fellow with the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA), as well as a recent 3-year Racial Equity Fellow with the WK Kellogg Foundation. He has had a diverse career – ranging from working at a government reform think tank and a children’s foundation, to volunteering as a community mediator, leading trainings for Executive Directors to growing an intergenerational literacy tutoring program that got acquired by AARP, and more. Recently a guest on KQED Forum and a SF resident for over seven years, his Bay Area roots now run a decade deep, where he currently lives in the East Bay with his wife and two young children.
