New Voices for Youth (NV4Y) is an outreach project of the League of Women Voters (LWV), a nonprofit, community-based volunteer
organization. NV4Y encourages the active and informed participation of citizens in
government and works to increase understanding of major public policy issues.
NV4Y, an after school program, discovers and trains youth leaders in
underrepresented communities. Youth work with experienced directors, who
provide expertise in media and youth organizing, to identify and craft issues
that can be explored digitally. Students hone skills that enable them to
express their opinions and communicate about complex issues with their peers
and the community.
