Who We Are
Civic Influencers is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit that empowers young people to make their voices heard—and their votes count. We operate hyper-locally in targeted districts and states to support a year-round civic movement that amplifies the power of Gen Z voters, especially those at community colleges, minority-serving institutions (MSIs), as well as trade, technical, and vocational schools.
Each year, over 4 million 18-year-olds become eligible to vote. Our mission is to get them to the polls.
How Civic Influencers Is Turbocharging Student Voters
The power of young voters
In 2022, 34 U.S. House Races were decided by 1% or less. In some districts, that could be a few hundred votes. By mobilizing students in these tight-margin districts, we can help young people swing elections—and safeguard our democracy.See How Young People Can Swing Elections!

Since 2021, we’ve trained and mobilized more than 800 Civic Influencers at campuses across the country. These paid fellows use on-the-ground data to help their peers make the connection between the importance of voting and the issues they care about.Sponsor a Civic Influencer Today!
