The Citizenship Tour
SEA selects 22 civically-minded and academically-accomplished high school and college students each summer to participate in the Citizenship Tour, an 8-day academic and athletic trip from New York City to Washington, D.C. The Citizenship Tour seeks to inspire students across the country to be civically engaged, to become better informed citizens, and to highlight the importance of public service within the country’s 19 SEA member programs.
Highlights of previous Tours include meetings with U.S. Senator Cory Booker, Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, Former Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Former MA Governor Deval Patrick, Congressman Elijah Cummings, and Congressman John Lewis and tours of the New York Times Building, Capitol Building, White House and Independence Hall.
