Mikva Challenge develops youth to be empowered, informed, and active citizens who will promote a just and equitable society.


Mikva Challenge envisions a stronger, inclusive democracy that values youth voice.

Our Values: We believe
  • By intentionally reaching out to under-resourced communities and schools, we create opportunities for youth to elevate the issues that are important to them and their community.
  • Policymakers make better decisions when youth voice is included in decision-making.
  • Community involvement is an essential experience for young people to have a voice in their future.
  • By remaining non-partisan, we make space for young people to form their own opinions and choose the candidates and issues they want to support.
