Civic Engagement is about working to make a difference in our communities and developing the knowledge, skills and values to continue engagement. Civic Engagement involves actions and behaviors individuals take to influence public matters. It's about working to enhance and promote the quality of life in our local and global community.
"Civic engagement means working to make a difference in the civic life of our communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivations to make that difference. It means promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political processes." (Ehrlich, 2000).
