What We Do
Our vision for Miami-Dade is for every eligible young voter to meaningfully participate in local, state, and national elections and civic engagement; that there is a clear and accessible pipeline to civic and political power for young people; and that there is a thriving civic culture that centers the vision of young people.
We are building a thriving civic culture in Miami-Dade through:
- Civic Education: We educate young people about their local and state government, upcoming election dates, and community organizing through social media, member meetings, and more.
- Leadership Development: We are actively developing the leadership skills of Black, Indigenous, and Latinx young people through our Student Fellowship Program and our Membership Base.
- Voter Engagement: We register voters, create nonpartisan voter guides, and ensure all of us have the information we need to be confident and ready to vote.
- Issue Organizing: We organize year-round at city hall, the county commission, and in the state legislature to make our platform, the Young People’s Policy Priorities, a reality in our cities and our state.
Engage Miami was founded in 2015 by local young people who wanted to organize for a more civically engaged Miami. Since then, Engage has registered and activated young voters, built leadership pipelines, and worked with coalitions to drive awareness and engagement on priority issues. We’ve registered over 30,000 voters, won early voting sites on campuses, created nonpartisan voter guides, educated thousands of students, and brought our members together with partners to develop a platform that represents Miami, the Young People’s Policy Priorities.
