The Power of the Youth Vote
The CCEP has partnered with the Yolo County of Assessor/Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters, and the Yolo County Office of Education to establish the Yolo County Youth Civic Initiative (YCYCI). The goal of the YCYCI is to increase youth involvement in the civic process by creating, promoting, and enhancing school and community efforts. With this collaboration, the CCEP created a new high school class unit called The Power of the Youth Vote. This non-partisan, eight-lesson unit is designed to help high school students understand why voting is important, and how it affects them and their communities. Students will receive practical information about how to vote, and how to become engaged members of their communities. Each lesson contains readings, exercises and discussion prompts that can be used together or as stand-alone resources.
