Democracy Bootcamp

Democracy Bootcamp is an initiative to provide teachers with the resources they need to encourage democratic engagement and civic participation amongst their students. The program is organized by CIVIX and sponsored by Elections BC.

Social Studies and civics courses present an opportunity for youth to learn about democracy, electoral history and voting in the public school system, and to develop the knowledge and awareness they need to become active citizens.

Democracy Bootcamp is designed to engage and motivate current teachers to improve their delivery of these courses, while further developing their knowledge and interest in B.C.’s electoral process.
