Multiple studies, led by Dr. Diana Owen from Georgetown University, were conducted recently showcasing the effectiveness of the We the People program and professional development.

Findings show that We The People students are much more likely to:

  • Be inclined to participate in politics
  • Respect the rule of law
  • Follow politics and enjoy talking about government and politics
  • Critically consume political news
  • Be inclined to vote in presidential elections, local elections, and serve on a jury
  • Believe that it is their responsibility to be involved in their community
  • Feel that they could make their community better by working with others rather than individually
  • Become more tolerant of opposing political ideas
