RU Ready is a civic engagement initiative created by the Rutgers University Eagleton Institute for Politics’ Center for Youth Political Participation. At Drew, students explore civic engagement education, prepare engaging workshops, and are trained to administer interactive sessions on civic participation. RU Ready lessons are implemented by college students in high school classrooms – supplementing social studies instruction with lessons in active citizenship. Instructional methods are evidence-based and make a positive impact on college and high school students. RU Ready is meant to be a political learning experience for both the college students who create and administer the workshops as well as the high school students experiencing it.
