TOMORROW'S CIVIC LEADERS (TCL) PROGRAM

Mission: To increase knowledge and understanding of the critical importance of “Civic Engagement” needed to ensure a successful democratic republic.

Purpose: The City of Mounds View recognizes the ultimate success of a republic does not reside in the simple act of voting, rather it is in an engaged citizenry that understands the true cost of the liberty and freedoms we are so fortunate to enjoy.  In short, democracy is hard work, it is not enough to just vote; one must become informed about the issues, informed about civic duty, and engage in governmental processes.  The TCL program is specifically created and designed to provide our future leaders multiple opportunities to explore, understand, and engage in our republic.
