From Freedom Summer 1964 to present day, the legacy of empowering young voters lives on.


We develop leaders who take action against injustice, whether close to home or across the nation.


Our Ambassadors set their campus community on the path toward civic engagement and greater political power.

We’re Amplifying Young Voices in Our Democracy

Young people aged 18-29 are one of the most underrepresented voter groups in the US — yet their values have the power to transform our nation.

The Andrew Goodman Foundation works to make young voices and votes a powerful force in democracy. We support youth leadership development, voting accessibility, and social justice initiatives on campuses across the country with mini-grants to select institutions of higher learning and other financial assistance to student leaders. Join us as we inspire more young people to pursue social change work, activate important lessons of the past, and sustain today’s effective social action.
