  • This is so inspiring and hopeful. I was imagining that Jeff and Steve may have felt like proud parents! These young people “get it.”Mary Reese Folger

In this episode, Steve McIntosh and I visit with two young leaders, Gary Sheng and Zoë Jenkins, who are activating higher consciousness in Generation Z through their organization Civics Unplugged. 

Civics Unplugged is a community of Gen Z leaders committed to strengthening democracy through civic entrepreneurship in the U.S. and around the world. The organization has received significant attention with partners like Andrew Yang, the Smithsonian, Duane “The Rock” Johnson, and National Geographic.

Wisdom is rarely married to youth, but meeting these two young people gave me greater confidence in our future, and I hope it will for you as well.

Gary Sheng, a former software engineer with Google, is on Forbes Magazine’s “30 Under 30” list of young innovators. Zoë Jenkins is a 17-year-old equity and justice advocate from Lexington Kentucky.
