September 30, 2014 – This year, the NYC Campaign Finance Board is sponsoring the NYC Votes Youth Voting Workshop. The Workshop is an interactive, discussion-based session that provides students with a comprehensive overview of city government, the functions of each elected position, and that voting has on their daily lives. The run time for the workshop is 45 minutes to an hour. Centered around issues effecting NYC youth, the workshop challenges students to think critically about how these issues effect themselves, their peers, families, and communities. Through the method of peer-to-peer engagement the students participate in a dynamic discussion that journeys them through the importance of voting and civic engagement, and guides them towards making personal connections between their issues and the roles of their elected officials.
