Connecting voting to the issues that matter to youth is key to participation and turnout by young voters.
The NYC Votes Youth Voting Workshop is an interactive session that engages students in critical discussion about the issues that affect them, their communities, and their futures, and connects these issues with the role of government. Within the workshop, students have the opportunity to register to vote, and are guided to analyze the power they have as young voters to impact government and influence legislation.
Over the past two years NYC Votes’ Youth Voter Coordinator has brought this workshop to 50 high schools and colleges across the city, as well as to youth groups at city agencies including the DYCD and Administration for Children’s Services.
