The energy was high in Mr. Hernandez’s civics and government class at Houston Gateway Academy as the teacher begin to lead his students in a new lesson from the UnidosUS High School Democracy Project. On this day, the class focused on the requirements for and the importance of voting in local, state, and national elections.
The High School Democracy Project works with schools across the country to help prepare teachers and administrators to register eligible youth to vote. UnidosUS believes it is vital to make voter education, awareness, and registration an integral part of every high school senior’s experience.
