Making Democracy Work

Youth/Student Services

What We Offer

The League of Women Voters (LWV) is a non-profit, nonpartisan political organization. Its mission is to promote informed and active participation in government. LWV Los Angeles wishes to find effective ways to engage youth and diverse populations in our community in the awareness of civic issues. We are eager to work with students and staff to design projects that are relevant to our goals and theirs.

LWVLA seeks to engage youth in the issues and programs so essential to our organization. Here are some examples of current projects/studies and programs of the League of Women Voters Los Angeles in which individuals might choose to assist: Internships, Running and Winning Forum, and a Campus Outreach Program.

Interns can also be involved in one day events such as education advocacy programs. The League hosted Girl Scouts from across southern California on June 23, 2012 for "Behind the Ballot". Interns can find themselves aiding the League in the planning of such events that promote registration methods and logistics of running for office.

Each program provides opportunities for learning and action and for involvement in the workings of democracy at the local level. It is a chance to help make change happen.

Chime in! on Facebook to see what events our interns are involved in at the League.
