CONTINUING THE LEGACY

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

TRAINING YOUNG LEADERS

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

BUILDING A CULTURE OF PARTICIPATION

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

We Make Civic Life as Powerful as Greek Life on Campus

What if every student registered to vote as they arrived on their college campus? Young people aged 18-29 are one of the most under-represented 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 partner with colleges and universities to cultivate civic leaders, remove voting barriers, and mobilize voters to take action on issues that will affect their future. Join us as we inspire more young people to pursue social change work, activate the important lessons of the past, and sustain today’s effective social action.
