Global Youth Caucus



  • As the generation poised to take responsibility for the economic, political, and social issues of the future, the perspective of young people will be vital to any policy question. Young voters are an underrepresented demographic, and struggle to make their voices heard. Despite the political landscape, youth across the world are making their desire for widespread change known. The future belongs to the youth.

    Never has it been a more exciting time to be a Global Youth Caucus (GYC) member! The GYC is working to expand, which means we are looking for more volunteers. There are options to volunteer at the global, national, or chapter level - so pick what commitment is best for you and let us know how you want to get involved.

    Youth Caucus Rentrée Cocktail

    Does the state of American politics trouble you? You’re in good company.

    Let's build the future of the Democratic Party together!

    Historically, young people have turned out to vote at extremely low rates. The tide is turning. Young Americans are increasingly getting involved in the political process: we’re voting at record rates and taking to the streets to protest police brutality, gun violence, climate inaction, and the dismantling of reproductive rights. Young people are fed up with the status quo and ready for some real change. 

    If you’re looking to meet new people in Paris, get involved in the political process, or simply register to vote, join the Youth Caucus for our rentrée event!

    In an era that has left us more isolated than ever, building community is a revolutionary act. Whether you’re a politics-fiend or you’ve never voted, we’d love to have you join us. You’ll have the chance to talk politics, play games, eat free food and meet some members of our organization. Our friends in the LGBTQ+ caucus, Diversity caucus, Veterans caucus, and Women’s Caucus will be joining us.

    We'll be hearing from our very own
