Train: Mobilizing people to vote, protecting their rights as voters, and educating people about elections is a lot of work. We’re building an army of the civically engaged young people to carry our work on.
- Internships: This year-round program keeps the fire of democracy stoked and the young people of Montana registered to vote. Our interns learn how to run registration drives, throw educational events, and do the field work in between. They take on final projects that range from registering high school seniors to throwing fundraisers.
- Fellowships: After a semester of an intensive interning, we offer some graduates the opportunity to work as a part-time staffer at Forward Montana Foundation.
- M.I.P.ternships: We work with the Missoula justice system to offer supervised minor in possession community service hours.
- School House Votes: Forward Montana Foundation trains high school volunteers all across the state to lead a civic engagement class that engages young people on the importance of voting. The class includes opportunities to discuss the issues that affecting students today, a mock election, voter registration opportunities, and voting history.
