Democracy Class

About Democracy Class

Democracy Class is a one-class-period program that uses video, a classroom discussion and a mock election to teach young people the skills to navigate the elections process and engage as active citizens.

Rock the Vote has served as the leader in engaging young people in politics for over two decades. We have worked to simplify and demystify voter registration and elections for young adults by using the latest technology and popular culture to energize young Americans to participate in the political process. Holding true to this mission and given the incredible need to foster civic participation among our country’s young people, we developed Democracy Class.

Democracy Class targets high school students across the country, bringing them into the political process and encouraging them to get involved. Through the program, we develop new interactive learning methods to foster civic engagement and to reach a generation of young people and register them to vote.
