What is Generation Joshua?

Generation Joshua is designed for Christian youth between the ages of 11 and 19 who want to become a force in the civic and political arenas. Our goal is to ignite a vision in young people to help America return to her Judeo-Christian foundations. We provide students with hands-on opportunities to implement that vision.

In America today, battles are being waged over many issues—from judicial activism to attacks on traditional marriage to the moral disintegration of our society. In the midst of the battles, we can lose sight of where our nation has come from, and these pressing concerns could crush our hope for America’s future.

Civics Courses

"Where there is no vision, the people perish," warns Proverbs 29:18. Yet when people gain a vision for accomplishing something great, there is no telling what they can do.

To give young people a vision for taking America back to its Judeo-Christian foundations, Generation Joshua offers an online civics curriculum. Teens will not only learn how government works, they will also learn how it should work if the original intent of the Constitution is followed.

Find out what the Founding Fathers really said about the Supreme Court’s role in the balance of powers. Examine precedent-setting cases in the light of the Constitution. Learn how grassroots involvement is key to a successful campaign. Courses include:

Each self-paced, self-guided session includes readings and an automated quiz, making it easy for students to take the course on their own.*

* Parents of home schooled students may assign credits and grades for government and civics units.

Voter registration

Generation Joshua trains the newest generation of young people to be effective leaders today in order to change governmental policies tomorrow. Encouraging people of faith to vote is an important part of that goal. In 2004, the number of Christian voters increased dramatically, and the results could be seen across the nation as more men and women of faith were elected into office. But there is still more to do. Just a small increase in Christian voters could make a big difference in the outcome of any election. Generation Joshua encourages its members to register new voters, especially Christian voters, because voting is a vital part of every Christian’s civic responsibility. Christians have a duty to rebuild the walls of American politics that were originally constructed on the foundation of biblical values and self-government.

Student Action Teams

Generation Joshua’s Student Action Teams, fully funded by HSLDA’s federal political action committee, provide young people the opportunity to turn their knowledge into action by volunteering in political races on behalf of conservative candidates. In the fall of 2002, seven teams of high school and college aged students worked on federal House and Senate races across America, phone banking, literature dropping, and campaigning. Of those seven races, six were victorious. In 2004, fourteen teams of youth were involved in nine races across the nation. Eight were victorious. It is evident that dedicated young people can positively impact the political world and learn how to run for office someday; the Student Action Teams are the vehicles that help tomorrow’s leaders elect the leaders of today.

This Washington Post article illustrates the kind of opportunities are availing themselves to Generation Joshua Members, once clubs are organized. Currently, there are Gen J Club Members in different parts of Ohio that are participating in campaigns. The coming November elections are placing Ohio in the national spotlight, once again, as the prime battleground. Stark County is still the bellwether of the state. Gen J Members will be right in the middle of activities that will position students to make a difference in their communities.

How do you get involved?

GenJ Clubs help maximize opportunities for Generation Joshua members at the local level. Organized by city and county, GenJ Clubs provide a forum for training club members in biblical citizenship by encouraging members to examine current events in light of the Constitution and the Bible, give club members the opportunity to get to know and work with other Generation Joshua members, and establish a grassroots network of active students who can participate in local civic activities and in Student Action Teams for viable conservative candidates. Imagine hundreds of clubs of Christian youth across the nation, praying for America, and then putting their faith and vision into action. If there are enough Christian youth being salt and light in their local communities, America cannot help but be changed for the better.

Stark County Area Home schoolers,

Already, the Stark County Generation Joshua Club has accomplished many things. In a short amount of time, we have had our national director, Ned Ryun in to speak to us and help launch our club. Our club students have elected officers for this school year and are scheduled to participate in Generation Joshua's Student Action Teams in November. To ramp up to this, our club students have already participated in two evenings of phone banking at the Stark County Republican Headquarters for Ken Blackwell, and also Summit County Republican Headquarters for Deborah Owens-Fink. Our students have also canvassed a neighborhood in Stark County for Ken Blackwell. After our last meeting, we folded and put address labels on 793 newsletters for Right to Life of Stark County.

We now have an e-mail list available for those who are signed up, to discuss meetings and activities. Our next upcoming club meeting will feature some quick instruction on Robert's Rules of Order and student initiatives.

Please consider becoming a part of the fastest-growing student civics movement in the country! Right here in Stark County, Ohio. Here are a few pics of our times together. I've also provided a local blog area connected to our support group. There are entries (link) if you wish to view and post a response.
