Empowering Change through Civic Engagement

At Florida Student Power Network, we firmly believe that civic engagement serves as an essential instrument in the transformation of communities, paving the way for a brighter future specifically designed to uplift black and brown youth and young adults. We are committed to empowering youth as active participants across various facets of civic engagement, including but not limited to voting, volunteering, advocacy, and participating in public meetings. By fostering their participation in these components of civic engagement, we aim to build the next generation of movers and shakers. With collective action and actively informing our community, we firmly believe in our ability to construct a society that is more inclusive and sustainable by prioritizing the needs of the most vulnerable individuals who are often overlooked and neglected.
