The Institute of Community and Civic Engagement works to empower students to become agents of change in their communities and beyond

The Institute of Community and Civic Engagement works to empower students to become agents of change in their communities and beyond; to foster education that meets the needs of the communities we serve; and to help develop pathways to meaningful participation in local, state, and federal government decision making processes.

Some of our projects include:

  • A resource Center for Undocumented Students

  • Public Policy School, where students are trained to be advocates on public policy
  • Youth Voices United for Change, an annual conference that brings 300 low income high school students to De Anza to learn about social change
  • Mentors for Youth Empowerment, a mentoring project where De Anza students work with high school students to find their voices as agents of change
