Redefine campus civic engagement
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.Stay Connected!
Since we began our partnership with the Foundation in 2014, we have registered over 4,200 students to vote, increased turn out in both local and federal elections, and, most importantly, we are witnessing a real culture shift in favor of student democratic engagement.
I have helped lead civic and voter engagement at MDC for more than 20 years and I can honestly say your program is unique, innovative, and the best of its kind that I’ve seen.
Through our partnership with The AGF we have built a greater capacity for student-led civic engagement on our campus. It has helped us to involve more students in opportunities while deepening our campus culture of active citizenship.
