Civics equips people to create the world they want to live in. We have built a grassroots 501(c)(3) nonprofit that is truly student-led: student organizers vote to shape our goals, vision, and work environment.

Rhizome heals divisions, combats disengagement, and addresses the mental health crisis by creating local civic communities. By inviting students to gain leadership experience and develop habits based on who they want to become, we inspire responsibility and put students on paths to lifelong leadership.

We offer nonpartisan resources for students to create a safer, happier, more engaged society. Rhizome is a space for action and ideas, a home for emerging leaders to create the world they want to live in.

School systems are an untapped source of civic power for young people. We are a student-led nonprofit, training youth organizers to revitalize democracy and build a healthier future for their communities.
