About MCCE

The Michigan Center for Civic Education (MCCE) is a non-partisan 501(C) 3 corporation, established in 1982 as Michigan's premier organization solely dedicated to preparing an active and informed citizenry through law-related and civic education.

We are dedicated to providing youth with the knowledge and skills needed to become engaged citizens.  You can’t learn to swim by reading a book—you need to jump in the pool and get wet.  You can’t learn to be a responsible, engaged citizen simply by reading a book either.  Students need the opportunities to practice the skills of citizenship and to interact with members of the community.
