High School Programs
Have a voice before you vote.
Voting isn’t our only tool in our civic toolbox! We all have a voice we can use to create change in our communities even if we’re not old enough to vote.
High school students across Montana are generators of amazing movements – organizing marches, getting problematic school policies changed, forming networks of young activists across the state and asking hard questions of those that represent them. Young people under 18 are using their voice and knowledge to advocate and inform others in their communities – yet we know this can be difficult without the knowledge to take the first step! In order to create a sustainable movement – we’ve created programs that provide civic knowledge (Underage Democracy), civic practice (Democracy Days), and civic leadership (High School Fellowship) to create even BIGGER change in their communities.
We’re here to support you, whether you are just beginning your journey of civic engagement or if you have already been on that path. Plus we have really cool schwag! Stickers, temporary tattoos, and popsockets galore.
Contact our High School Program Manager at email@example.com with questions, concerns or to get free stickers.
