A new study, released by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation and the National Conference on Citizenship, compares the civic health of Illinois Millennials (residents 18-29), with their national peers. The data reveals that Illinois youth are slightly outpacing the national averages on such indicators as making donations and participating in political discussions.
They fall near the bottom, however, on key forms of participation such as voting in local elections and neighborhood engagement. This information allows the Foundation to pinpoint areas for growth and help identify strategies to encourage young citizens to be more engaged.
