The League of Women Voters of Ohio (LWVO) is a nonpartisan organization dedicated to ensuring the sanctity of Ohio’s election process and protecting the rights of every Buckeye State voter. Since 1920, the League of Women Voters of Ohio has played a critical role in Making Democracy Work - and we are excited to announce a new addition to the League: The LWVO’S Youth in Action!
The purpose of LWVO’S Youth in Action (YIA) is to give high school and college aged youth (ages 13-25) an empowering space to be able to learn and engage in dialogue centered on becoming civically engaged and learning how to use their voices to have an impact on the government. The YIA will use a social-justice oriented framework for civic engagement and promote growth through personal exploration and socially responsible leadership.
The YIA plans to meet bi-monthly and will cover a wide variety of topics, including:
Government & Leadership
Women’s Rights Issues
AND MUCH MORE!
Additionally, the YIA offers:
Speakers / Workshops
Service Opportunities (In-person or Remote)
Professional and Personal Growth
A chance to influence the policies and practices of the League of Women Voters
The YIA’s inaugural meeting will be on Sunday, December 13 th at 12:00 pm. The guest speaker, Shavonda Johnson, will be discussing mental health. Due to the pandemic, all meetings will be held over Zoom until further notice.
We are very excited to commence this new adventure! If you have any questions, please reach out to Kaiyah Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About League of Women Voters of Ohio

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
The League of Women Voters is a peoples' organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage all Americans in the decisions that impact their lives. We never endorse or oppose political parties or candidates, but we are political.
Formed from the movement that secured the right to vote for women, the League of Women Voters' most important efforts continue to be expanding participation and giving a voice to all Americans. We do this at all three levels of government, engaging in both broad educational efforts as well as advocacy. Our issues are grounded in our respected history of making democracy work for all Americans.
