Civic Education In Michigan

Who Are We & What Is Our Organization About?

The Michigan Center for Civic Education (MCCE) was established in 1982 as a non-partisan 501(C)3 nonprofit corporation. MCCE was created to be a premier organization dedicated to preparing active and informed members of society through law-related and civic education in Michigan.

We are dedicated to providing youth with the knowledge and skills needed to become engaged members of a more vibrant and healthy civic society. Learning to swim cannot be done simply by reading a book; a person needs to jump into the water and to get wet. The same is true in regards to learning how to be a be a responsible, engaged members of society.

Students need to have opportunities to both learn and practice the skills of citizenship and to interact with members of the community in order to understand how our government works and how they can be actively engaged in the process.
