Policy should be driven by you.
We have been a leading voice for young people when decision makers meet in Richmond, but our efforts are only as strong as those who help us advocate for what's right. Find out more about our policy agenda, advocacy tactics, and opportunities to better our cause.
Building Power starts with a Ballot.
Young people are now the most politically powerful group-- as long as we vote. This comprehensive resource provides all things Virginia elections including voter registration, absentee ballot applications, candidate information, and voter precinct locations.
One story can spark a solution.
Young Virginians are affected by unique economic and social challenges. We want to hear how you've struggled with issues related to college affordability, student debt, voting rights, and underemployment so we can be a better advocate for you.
Stay involved between Election Days.
Active citizenship is the key to forging a better future for all Virginians. We organize events year round to raise awareness on issues, educate voters, connect young professionals, and promote good policy. We also make sure that registration is free or low cost so anyone can be involved.
