Mission Statement

Kids Voting Minneapolis is a community-based nonpartisan, nonprofit organization working to prepare Minneapolis' 50,000 young people to be educated, informed voters. Kids Voting Minneapolis is empowering students with the skills and confidence to embrace civic involvement. Kids Voting is working to secure the future of democracy by preparing young people to be educated, engaged voters.

Description

Kids Voting Minneapolis is part of a national network of independent local affiliates working to educate and inform our youth on the history and importance of democratic elections and citizen participation. Kids Voting provides a kindergarten-12th grade civic learning curriculum to all Minneapolis schools (public, private, alternative, charter and home schools) at no cost. Students learn about the right to vote, democracy, civic responsibility and the importance of participation in the voting process. The classroom activities help students develop critical thinking, information gathering and decision-making skills. Then on Election Day, students experience first-hand an authentic voting experience by accompanying their parents to their neighborhood polling place. Students cast a Kids Voting ballot, voting on many of the same candidates and issues that adults do. This simple act takes the mystery out of the voting process and instills in students a feeling of pride, accomplishment and responsibility.
