Election Day

   Engaging Young Americans In Meaningful Community Action


Welcome to Youthwork Makes the Boothwork!  Our site connects you with ways to engage in upcoming elections, and get involved with opportunities for civic engagement in your school, town, county, state and nation.  Become an active player in our democracy.


Call to Action, Call to Learn

Youth, teachers, and public officials find below four avenues where you can make a difference in our public life.  Each avenue offers a different entry-point for learning and active engagement.  Our vision is that you – and, we strongly recommend, your friends and colleagues – will explore the suggestions here for getting involved, that you will find one or two that are fitting for your location and interests, and that you will be inspired to engage in these public issues and decisions.
