The VA Election Hub is an exciting opportunity to extend civics education beyond the four walls of the traditional classroom. Civics happens on the streets! This organization provides an opportunity to students to use their native digital skills to improve their community and engage in a meaningful way in civics. I am a part of the VA Election Hub to help find and engage students directly in the democratic process as high school interns.
