Georgia Shift is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization giving young people a seat at the table of democracy. We believe social change only comes by constantly providing hands-on education and direct action opportunities, keeping young people engaged to train those who come after them.
Every year, we register new young voters and turn them out to the polls, making sure everyone has the chance to make their voice heard in the political process.
Through our year-round paid fellowship program, we give young people the trainings, resources, and hands-on education to become the leaders of the future.
From the state capitol to the county commission, we work to pass real policies that impact the issues young people deal with every day while holding elected officials accountable.
