A bold vision requires a bold plan. Are you in?

We know politics can be an unfriendly place for most young people. It’s boring, wonky, and feels slimy some of the time. But rather than dipping out, we’re asking our friends to dive in. We believe if more young people vote and advocate civically for public policies that reflect their values, a more supportive climate will be created to advance policies that better their lives and the lives of all Montanans. This change will happen faster if more young Montanans have the leadership skills and training to be effective civic advocates.

That’s why, we’re educating, engaging, and organizing young Montanans to shape their democracy to improve their lives and the lives of their fellow Montanans.

We register 1,000s of young people every year. Each time we register someone to vote, we’re engaging in conversations about making our democracy better — and urging those voters to make their voices heard. We know that when young people vote their values, progress happens.

Young Montanans make up 25% of eligible voters in Montana. Our generation cares deeply about issues like climate change, economic justice, and LGBTQ equality. When we show up at the polls, our values win.

Leadership development is the cornerstone of our work. That’s why each year we move dozens of interns, fellows, and volunteer leaders through our leadership development program to work in our government, at other non-profits, and with political leaders.

Do You Believe?

It takes year-round education, organizing, and relationship-building to foster a culture of civic engagement and leadership among our peers. And it’s because of supporters like you, that we’re able to educate and engage young Montanans, resulting in lifetime voters, activists, and leaders.
