FPCC Library To Host Democracy Project Program
The Democracy Project is expanding from three sites during the pilot program year, 2021–2022, to 14 sites in its second year.
The Democracy Project is a teen-led program empowering the young people in Montana to take action. Teens who want to make a difference work together to identify an issue, design a project and find solutions through local government systems.
This program teaches civic education and partners with libraries across the state. For the 2022–2023 program year, 14 libraries and schools in urban, rural and tribal nation communities across Montana will participate in The Democracy Project.
The second-year Democracy Project sites are: James E. Shanley Tribal Library – Fort Peck Community College in Poplar, Seeley Lake Public Library, Drummond School and Community Library, Gallatin High School in Bozeman, Lewis and Clark Library in East Helena, Lewis and Clark Library in Helena, Aaniiih Nakoda College in Fort Belknap, Columbia Falls High School Library, George McCone Memorial County Library in Circle, Whitehall Community Library, Missoula Public Library, Billings Public Library, Lewistown Public Library and Choteau County Library.
The Democracy Project is funded by the Charles Engelhard Foundation and sponsored by Humanities Montana.
