About Energizing Young Voters

Vision – Every 18-29 year old in the United States will become a life-long voter and engaged citizen.
Mission – Every 18-29 year old will understand:

- Develop the intention to vote
- Be equipped to overcome all barriers to casting a ballot and participating in our democracy
- Understand how the political process brings about change
- Develop the confidence and skills needed to participate in the political process
- Be willing to take a stand and defend democracy
