UToledo political science students Leticia Skrabut (right) and Kyra Valentine (left) are encouraging young people to participate in the political process through a partnership with the Campus Vote Project.
CVP launched the Democracy Fellowship program in 2014. Since then, CVP has graduated 186 student leaders. Democracy Fellows play a critical role in motivating their peers, faculty, and administrators to take part in nonpartisan democratic engagement activities on their campuses.
Every day they talk to their peers about registering to vote, educate them on election laws and what’s on the ballot, and make sure students at their campus are ready to engage with democracy. Fellows are not only engaging their peers in the next upcoming election. We’ve challenged our fellows to implement programs on each of their campuses that will remain long after they graduate and make an impact on students for years to come.
We are seeking students who are self starters, democratically engaged, politically interested & willing to help peers register to vote and engage in dialogue around democracy.
