Maine Students Vote: General Program Information

 

Dear students:

Interested in advocacy issues and getting out the vote?

We're working to build a diverse army of Gen Z, whose members are civically engaged and pumped to help GOTV in all elections. These students engage their peers to become lifelong voters and participate in other activities that strengthen our democracy. They take action on issues of interest and share opportunities to get involved that go well beyond voting.

Want to get involved?  

High school students: Check out the list of opportunities.

College students: Check out the list of opportunities.

 

Dear teachers:

How do we create lifelong voters?

We offer a wide variety of services and youth engagement services. We have developed curricula on a few topics that you can take, modify to suit your needs, and present in your classroom. We have developed a training guide for faculty who are interested in integrating democratic engagement into their classes. We can provide a guest speaker on a variety of topics related to democracy. For more information, Check out our full suite of services.

 

Dear community members:

Want to ignite youth engagement?

We can offer one-on-one or small group trainings to people who want to do third-party voter registration events or help others register to vote. We teach relational organizing centered around getting out the vote by teaching people how to effectively communicate within their personal networks. For more information, Check out our full suite of services.
