Youth activism has always led to social change.
STRENGTHENING DEMOCRACY FOR GENERATIONS TO COME.
TurnUp is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and mobile app that comprises the largest youth-led voter registration and turnout initiative. We’re on a mission to strengthen democracy by increasing high impact youth civic action and closing the gap between young people who want to take civic action and those who actually take action. TurnUp includes five integrated programs that work together to increase youth voter
registration and turnout: the internship training program; online program; on campus and relational voter registration and turnout program; mobile app; and ideas incubator. TurnUp was recognized by Forbes as the #1 standout tech non-profit organization of 2022.
We are the largest and fastest-growing coalition of youth turnout advocates, powered by a diverse team of over 4,000 youth organizers, 20,000+ young volunteers, hundreds of partner organizations, and thousands of individual donors from every corner of the Country. We are a community united by a commitment to increase youth voter registration and turnout at the polls by fully investing in young people, removing systemic barriers to civic participation, and amplifying our formidable voice.
Young people have shown us that with support from TurnUp's programs they will show up in droves and be the energetic change-makers that our democracy needs.
TurnUp's goal is to register every newly eligible voter and pre-registrant in key states where the votes of young people can make the biggest impact in 2024.
We are hiring students in key states to run voter registration drives at their high schools and to relationally contact each newly eligible student at their high school or college reminding them to register to vote. We are also utilizing our internship program and online tools to register voters.
