The Youth Voter Movement is excited to share this non-partisan free comprehensive Youth Voting Civics Education Toolkit developed by the Santa Clara County Office of Education in San Jose, CA, with support from community partners, including the Youth Voter Movement. Expert civics curriculum developers created a wide variety of (a)synchronous (mini)lessons for civics educators to use with their students. Embedded in the curriculum are PDFs, quizzes, videos, hyperlinks, games and original sources.
The curriculum is designed to motivate students to think about voting and what matters most to them.
The big ideas include:
We hope you find the curriculum useful for your students. We look forward to receiving your feedback on what worked well and what we can improve.
Please Register Students to Vote via YVM Website:
By registering students to vote via the YVM website, we can track the effectiveness of the resources the site is providing. We (and you) can have access to how many students registered, from what schools, by what teachers, etc. We also try to capture best practices for future registration drives via a survey.
