What is active citizenship?

Through Tisch College's Active Citizenship Summer program, more than 65 undergraduate and graduate students spend their summer receiving hands-on training through internships or self-designed projects locally, nationally and internationally. Undergraduate Terence Tran is one of the five students taking advantage of a new placement with the Massachusetts Council on Compulsive Gambling, helping develop a youth peer network able to generate public awareness about the dangers of compulsive gambling. A Medford native, Tran has worked with youth in the Chinatown community for many years, and helped develop the youth program, Asian Voices of Organized Youth for Community Empowerment.
