    Thanks, Katy, for drawing attention to this essential issue. It’s harder to reach non-college youth, because they are dispersed; and they start with lower turnout rates. But if we omit them, we can’t have an equitable democracy.

    One of our very favorite organizations that does engage non-college youth in politics (in a strictly nonpartisan fashion) is YouthBuild.

    Just adding details about Peter’s reference – per the website https://www.youthbuild.org/ :
    At YouthBuild programs in the United States and across the globe, low-income young people learn construction skills to help build affordable housing and other community assets such as community centers and schools.
