|Welcome to the U.S. Civics Training Initiative.
The United States is experiencing “systematic civics failure”. A majority of Americans get an “F” on basic civics exams. This includes – college graduates, college professors, politicians and young adults. In fact, one of the most concerning statistics today is that almost 50% of Young Adults between 18 and 34 believe that America’s founding documents are irrelevant to governing our modern society.Our public school systems and modern universities are turning out a generation of young people that are “civically illiterate.”
The U.S. Civics Training Initiative’s purpose is to meet this shortcoming straight on. Our unique approach is to take some of the foundational principles and documents of our free republic and present them in a concise and systematic way in a web video format that can be viewed by individuals, families, and groups anytime and anywhere. Our approach is to focus on key civic principles that are no longer taught. What is currently on the site represents about 25% of the content that we will build out over time as we can fund it.
Even with what has been produced so far, the impact has been profound. We have had over 35,000 individuals from across the world view these seminars. Families, civic groups, church groups, and businesses have used them to train small and large audiences.
The sad truth is that back during the founding period 90% of Americans knew the content presented in these web seminars. Today over 95% of Americans have never heard them presented. In the last 100 years, we have deviated from these truths tremendously. Today when Americans hear these truths again, they are motivated to help keep America “the land of the free and the home of the brave” and they yearn to share these concepts with others.
So, we are glad you are here. You can see comments of others below. You can get started in your own Civics Education right away by simply going to the Training Center tab at the top of the page and begin to sample some of the web seminars there.
Thanks for your interest. We hope you enjoy our current free offerings and sign up to be a member so that together we can work toward a national revival of the first principles of freedom and liberty.
