Kids Voting-Guilford County is a local nonprofit, nonpartisan civic education organization that prepares young people to be educated, engaged citizens.
Our goal is to empower young people to participate in our democracy and let their voices be heard. By participating in Kids Voting students learn about government, democracy, voting,and the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. The program creates an expectation that they will become lifelong, informed voters at age 18.
We provide classroom activities that encourage family dialogue and community involvement, an authentic voting experience for students in Kindergarten through 12th grade, and related service-learning opportunities.
Our program is made possible through longstanding partnerships with public, private, home, and charter schools; teachers; community and civic organizations; local businesses; and dedicated volunteers of all ages.
