As citizens we often lack the knowledge, skills, and ability to articulate our desire to make the policy changes necessary to restore our government to its proper role.

Current liberty-minded civics training only teach theory. We teach concrete ways, through educational training and practical exercises, how to influence legislators and policy.

Overview of Classes

LEVEL 1  The Level 1 course is designed to introduce the concepts surrounding self governance, civic authority and bring everyone up to a common level of knowledge regarding our role in exercising our civic responsibilities and authority. This course is foundational and will lay the ground work necessary to successfully implement the lessons learned in future courses.

LEVEL 2  The Level 2 course is designed to teach argument framing, messaging, debate, and communications in strategic self-governance. Students will learn how to engage legislators, citizens, media, and opponents of self-governance. This course will give students the hands on experience needed to effectively communicate a self governance message.

LEVEL 3  The Level 3 course is designed to give students a Macro Understanding of State Legislature, County and City Government. Students will learn to overcome obstacles and hurdles while navigating the local, state, and federal legislative process. This course prepares the student for detailed inside & outside game strategy in Level 4.

LEVEL 4  The Level 4 course is designed to give students a Micro Understanding of the State Legislature, Strategy and Game Theory. Students will expand their understanding of the detailed processes and inner workings of the state legislature. They will learn how to navigate & manipulate the inside game and develop and execute an outside game to influence policy making outcomes.

LEVEL 5   The Level 5 course allows students to choose between one of two pathways. The first pathway is designed to teach students how to run for elected office, effectively manage their campaign, and successfully transition to legislating. The second pathway is designed to teach students the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to operate inside and outside the legislature with the same capabilities as a professional lobbyist.

Watch this video on Civic Responsibility.  This references Canada, but it is interesting that it is exactly like the US.....

Bruce EXCELLENT evaluation.

If you want to impact how government meets the needs of the people or government at all levels take the right action - you will want to attend these classes.  72 percent of Americans believe the biggest threat to America is big government.  Sefl-governance will help us to reduce the excessive role of government at all levels and require upholding and defending the Constitution of the U.S. and Arizona.

I agree with Joanne, if you have it before you are not going to pay enough attention to the discussion. You will also not be as open to discussion. High liter and listen to the lessons.

The workbooks are proprietary to the CSG and are in constant flux as they go through the beta testing.  They are also experimenting with the order of things so there is movement in the order as well.  Too expensive to have to re-print.  It is not really necessary to follow along word for word and some things, depending on the group discussion, are covered in conversation so there is always adjustments made.    You can read the books word for word afterward.  Bring a highlighter.

Suggestion - issue the work book before the class so students can read.  Would make the 'following' and sequencing easier.
