RU Ready Drew

RU Ready is a civic engagement initiative created by the Rutgers University Eagleton Institute for Politics’ Center for Youth Political Participation. At Drew, RU Ready students explore civic engagement education, prepare engaging workshops, and administer interactive sessions on civic participation to high school students at our partner school in Orange, NJ. RU Ready is a political learning experience for both the college students who create and deliver the workshops as well as the high school students participating. For more information, contact Professor Pat McGuinn at pmcguinn@drew.edu and Amy Koritz at akoritz@drew.edu.

As a culminating activity of RU Ready, the Young Leaders Conference was held on Zoom for the first time on Friday April 23, 2021. The day-long conference involved exploring youth political participation, revisiting the lessons learned in the classroom regarding avenues of civic engagement, and offering practical suggestions for young people not only interested in community involvement but in assuming leadership positions in their communities.

Terry Metellus C’21 joined the program in its inaugural year as a sociology major. “RU Ready is a program that allows Drew students like me to help high school students find their voice to address problems in their community. I am very excited to be working on this project / cohort because it gives me the opportunity to provide young students with the tools and encouragement to be politically aware and engaged,” she said.

RU Ready Drew joins on-going efforts to strengthen participation in democratic processes across the university, including the Drew Student Voter Project, the ALL IN Democracy Challenge Civic Action Plan, and the New Jersey Secretary of State’s Ballot Bowl competition.
