Welcome to the Maine Citizenship Education Task Force
The Maine Citizenship Education Task Force is a coalition of more than 50 individuals and organizations committed to promoting and strengthening citizenship education and civic engagement across Maine.
The Task Force was established via legislative resolve in May 2004, and is co-chaired by the Deputy Commissioner of Education and Chair of the Maine State Board of Education.
The Task Force is guided by the belief that it is necessary, but not sufficient, for youth to acquire knowledge through the study of history and government. It is equally vital that youth gain effective skills to act on civic knowledge, develop attitudes and beliefs that predispose them to civic engagement, and have authentic opportunities to participate in the civic and political life of their schools and communities.
