Notes from the Field

Training and Mobilizing the Next Generation: Our High School Outreach Program

April 15, 2018

Our first annual statewide Democracy Days took place last week in 11 high schools across the state! Through Democracy Days we registered over 120 students to vote and empowered 10 student leaders with the skills they need to make change in their communities.

For other high school-aged students looking to get involved with our work – check out our upcoming GOTV internship and summer internships, or talk to your teacher about our Underage Democracy education templates that you can take to your classroom to learn more about voting rights and civic engagement in your community. Thanks to all who made Democracy Days 2018 a success!

 

“Voting encourages all to take a stand in local and national politics, and Democracy Days provided an easy and fun means of accessing it. It’s a really remarkable event that should be available not only across Montana, but across the nation! ”
