Introduction

The My Voice, My Vote was a one-year programme that aimed to build understanding and confidence in the democratic process amongst young people who were eligible to vote for the first time in the May 2015 general election.

The Programme

 

The programme targeted graduates of NCS (National Citizens Service) who wanted to develop their social action and leadership skills. Participants worked together to run a digital social action campaign, learn from influential leaders, and organise a hustings for Parliamentary candidates in their area. By engaging in social action and understanding more about how decisions get made, young people became better equipped to champion the issues they care about, and how to use their right to vote.
