The New Voters Mission

By the youth,
for the youth.


New Voters began as a high school club in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, where our founder registered over 85% of eligible students for the 2018 midterm election.ย That year, New Voters expanded to dozens of schools in Pennsylvania and officially became a 501(c)3 nonprofit.

In 2020, we launched nationally and recruited our team of 50+ interns and directors to expand the reach of our registration model. Since our inception, we have impacted over 300,000 high school students, registering over 80,000 high school students to vote, and working with student leaders in 39 states.

We have also expanded to involve students in government policy formulation and implementation, political research, and civic technological development. ย 

Our vision is simple: comprehensive youth civic engagement in America.

The New Voters Approach

Our Registration Model

Mentorship and Training
โ€

We pair our student leaders with a trained, in-house high school/college student mentor. Our mentor works one-on-one with the student leader, providing them with resources and guidance on running a voter registration drive at their school.

State Specific Guides
โ€

The high school student leader runs a drive using their New Voters school-specific registration link. After the drive, the mentor helps the student leader track their impact and guides them in establishing a permanent New Voters school chapter.

College and High School Partnerships

Student leaders, mentors, and the New Voters policy team coordinate community-driven advocacy initiatives and engagement sessions in addition to voter registration drives. We strive to engage young people in their state policy conversations beyond voting. By augmenting civic passion, we can empower more young people to take an active role in government.
