American Trustees

A collection of documentary films and standards-aligned lesson plans that allow viewers to discover how citizens can be influential in the civic arena, what motivates people to change the world, and most importantly, helps viewers to uncover how they can become trustees of their own communities.

Our future really depends on our future generation to get involved; to really take back the democracy. It is really up to all of us. And, I would really like to see each one of us take responsibility to our system. If I could do it, anybody could. And everybody should.
