Young people are making their voices heard this election season whether they are old enough to vote or not. Explore how students are leading, organizing and participating with these resources from KQED Education.

“How Youth Can Make Their Voices Heard” is an article written for young people by a (relatively) young person passionate about getting herself (and others) involved. Read her story and find suggestions for ways students can make sure their voices are heard.

The Local Election Toolkit for Teachers has all the tools teachers need to support their students in being civically engaged.

This Above the Noise video explores ideas on how to get students politically active beyond the ballot box.

After watching that Above the Noise video, use this KQED Learn discussion to get your students talking about how we can get more young people to vote.


Read about how students are pre-registering 16 and 17 year olds to vote using Google Slides in this In the Classroom blog post from teacher Peter Paccone. 

Learn how you can help students become familiar with the issues by creating an interactive election guide, in this In the Classroom blog post from teacher Bob Kelly.
