America is a country founded in debate. It is the duty of every successive generation to sustain the balance and to wrestle with the evolving ideas that define our national values. To foster that vital debate, Colonial Williamsburg introduces the Virtual Republic, a free, online resource where young Americans discuss current policy issues and suggest solutions to improve their communities and world.
Through the Virtual Republic, young citizens review policies, author new proposals and find ways to take action. A visit to the Virtual Republic connects you to these resources:
Use the Virtual Republic in your classroom and teach students that history is more than something you learn -- it's something you create every day.
