Partnership with Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s iCivics
In October 2010, Virtue Foundation partnered with iCivics to create the Virtue Foundation/iCivics Digital Storytelling Initiative. Using classroom curriculum, online games, and digital storytelling, this initiative gives students the opportunity to tell their stories of community service, citizenship, and the positive impact they are making in their own communities.
“I founded iCivics to inspire the next generation to become active and effective civic participants,” said Justice O’Connor. “The Virtue Foundation/iCivics Digital Storytelling Initiative will provide access to technology, teach citizenship, and help students across the country engage in their communities.”
“This initiative builds upon Virtue’s past project successes toward providing a learning environment in which students are acquiring essential skills, engaging in community service, and feeling empowered to make a difference,” said Dr. Salim. “Giving classrooms access to cutting-edge technology while encouraging children to tell their own stories of community service advances not only individual students’ education, but has the potential to transform entire communities.”
