Introduction: Political behavior profoundly influences societal dynamics, reflecting individuals' attitudes, sentiments, and judgments towards public issues. Collaboration among government, civil society institutions, and Educational Institutes is pivotal to shaping constructive political attitudes, particularly among youth.

Problem Statement: Despite the significance of political behavior, there's a lack of concerted efforts to foster civic education and engagement among students, potentially undermining democratic principles and societal cohesion.

Methodology: This study employed a qualitative literature review methodology to explore the role of educational institutions and civil society in shaping political landscapes. A systematic search and analysis of scholarly articles, books, and reports were conducted to identify key insights.

Findings: Collaboration between Educational Institutes, governments, and civil society positively impacts students' political awareness and behavior. Integrating civic education into Educational Institute curricula and organizing seminars enhance students' understanding of democratic principles and foster active participation in political discourse.

Implication and Future Direction: The findings underscore the importance of inclusive education and collaborative efforts in promoting democratic values among youth. Future research should focus on longitudinal studies to assess the long-term impact of civic education initiatives on students' political engagement and societal development.
