About the High School Voter Outreach Project
Over the past three years, we have presented in-person classroom lessons to approximately 1000 students and received approximately 800 voter registrations, with the help of our dedicated presenters and committed volunteers. See more...
We have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from students and teachers about our program. In March 2020, because of the pandemic crisis, we suspended our in-person lessons and created new ways to reach eligible young voters.
Our inventive team reworked our copyrighted “Voting Made Easier" digital lesson to respond to these challenging times. This lesson provides one instructional hour of online learning, with links to the online and paper Voter Registration Applications, and more. We also provide resources for teachers, including open-ended questions to extend student learning and resource websites.
For youth and all citizens during the summer and fall, we created four short digital tutorials with hyperlinks and a number of imaginative new infographics.
Find the digital lesson and other documents that promote youth voter empowerment on the High School and College Voter Outreach Page.
The High School Voter Outreach committee is NOW SCHEDULING VIRTUAL classroom lessons for the fall and winter semesters via ZOOM presented by our experienced volunteers. Contact us for more information at: firstname.lastname@example.org
