This program shows the conclusion of a twelve-week civic engagement unit developed by the national Student Voices program. 

Jose' Velazquez's twelfth grade students at University High School in New Jersey divide into small groups to brainstorm and research community issues, prioritize the issues on the basis of what they have learned, present their findings to the class both orally and through a visual presentation, and develop a whole-class consensus on a youth agenda that they present to the mayoral candidates in a televised question-and-answer forum. 

The methodologies highlighted in this lesson include issue identification and consensus building.
