Super cool opportunity to join YVote, a youth voting movement

I attended YVote’s last event and it was awesome!

They’re recruiting young people to join YVote this fall. You’ll be

  • participating in biweekly Pizza and Politics forums to bolster their organizing, advocacy, and campaign building skills
  • registering students as part of the High School Voter Registration Coalition the week of Sept 23
  • developing and executing campaigns to get ALL 16 and 17 year olds in NY pre-registered to vote–and to be more broadly civically engaged–come Jan 2020
  • working to increase youth engagement in Congressional District 15, which has among the lowest youth voter turnout in NYC
  • being trained and serving as youth poll workers
  • getting involved in census outreach
  • forging partnerships with teens to do mobilization in vital states (you know, places like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Florida)
  • partnering with a nucleus of leaders to develop a “civic ecosystem” to provide on-ramps for greater numbers of young people to identify and engage in civic opportunities
