Often the questions posed by students at our forums are among the most pointed and resonant questions. Over 30,000 students have attended City Club forums through our Student Participation program since its inception more than 30 years ago.
The City Club has an ongoing commitment to sharing its work with our region's youngest citizens. Student participation at the City Club has grown into a mainstay and has become a very important component in our educational outreach initiatives. Student participation provides students with hands-on exposure to lessons about citizenship, civics, and history. Students participants not only learn about current affairs, they learn how to analyze complex issues facing society and how to express a mature point of view.
All on-site forums are open to students for free and include lunch. Lunch begins at 12:00 p.m., forums begin at 12:30 p.m. and conclude at 1:30 p.m.
