Youth Organizing

Together with West Virginia Citizen Action Group, this summer Rise Up WV will be launching a brand-new WV Youth Organizing Fellowships program to train and employ WV youth in electoral and issue-based organizing.

West Virginia is undergoing a political transformation, and youth and educators are leading the charge.  Building on the wave of progressive energy in West Virginia, and leading up to the elections, help us hire and coach young organizers to make 2018 a victory year for a working families!
