On August 15th, the Institute’s New Politics Forum kicked off this year’s Texas Civic Ambassadors program by convening the 2019-2020 cohort at the 2019 TCA Leadership Summit in Austin, TX. Twenty-nine students from 15 Texas universities and colleges participated in the four-day event. They learned about civic life in Texas and partook in communications, leadership analysis, deliberative dialogue, project design, and community organizing training. Students met with civic leaders, mentors, and program staff as they developed their strategic educational outreach project to enhance civic health in their communities.
