Mission Statement
Constitutional Rights Foundation (CRF) seeks to instill in our nation's youth a deeper understanding of citizenship through values expressed in our Constitution and its Bill of Rights and to educate young people to become active and responsible participants in our society. CRF is dedicated to assuring our country's future by investing in our youth today.

“Why CAP?”

CRF’s Civic Action Project (CAP) is a project-based learning model for civics and government courses. It offers a practicum in effective citizenship by engaging high school students in civic activities both in and out of the traditional U.S. government course. By taking civic actions, students practice what real citizens do when they try to solve a real problem and issue that matters to them. As a result, they are able to see how the content of a government course can apply to the real world. Also, by using web-based technology and civics-based instruction and activities, students exercise important 21st century skills in digital literacy, critical thinking, collaboration, self-direction, and becoming informed and responsible citizens in a democracy.
