"Civics is more than a school subject taught from a textbooks, it is a way of life."
-Maurits Acosta, President of Virtutem Populo, Inc.
At Virtutem Populo, we understand and value that civics is more than just a textbook school subject. Civics is a way of thinking, a way of living. This is why we dedicate ourselves to inspiring young minds to take an active stance in their communities and to get involved with local government. We believe in the Virtutem Populo mentality, the mentality that one must be the change they want to see in the world.
We advocate for youth representation in government, community involvement, and active civic education.
We offer a variety of programs ranging from events to workshops to improve student understanding and engagement of local government and civics.
We educate students on the processes of government and the importance of being involved civically in ones community.
