The Citizenship Education Clearing House (CECH)

A pioneer in civic education, the Citizenship Education Clearing House (CECH-pronounced “check”) has been conducting programs in citizenship education since the late 1960. From the beginning, CECH programs have sought to integrate participatory citizenship education into the curricula of middle and high schools and to facilitate the development and implementation of student-initiated action projects. Wolfgang Althof is the Executive Director of CECH which is now under the umbrella of the CCC. Currently, CECH runs two programs: Missouri Youth Engaged in Local Government (MY LOGO) and Kids Voting Missouri. Sandy Diamond is the program coordinator for both initiatives.
