Volunteer Opportunities

State Resources

  • California Center for Civic Participation is a non-profit civic education organization,engaging high school students by sparking their interest with exposure to real excitement of the democratic process. We believe that youth hold so much untapped and unlimited power to change their communities and their world and we exist to expose and nurture that power.
  • Pre-Register to Vote at 16 and Vote at 18-Online pre-registration is now available for eligible 16 and 17 year olds by visiting registertovote.ca.gov. California youth who pre-register to vote will have their registration become active once they turn 18 years old. Pre-registration does not change the voting age, which is 18. Instead, it allows eligible Californians ages 16 or 17 to complete the online voter registration form providing sufficient time and opportunity to get ready to vote.

National Resources

Youth.gov provides an outline for youth to better understand civic engagement.
