Our mission is to transform young leaders’ inspiration into action that improves our communities and strengthens our democracy.
Inspire Virginia is a strictly nonpartisan program of Project High Hopes, a 501(c)3 operating foundation.
Our student-driven approach, supported by staff and volunteers in multiple states, focuses on three main components during the first “Inspired Year”: Leadership, Democracy, and Community.
Proven Track Record.
In just three years, 600 Inspired Leaders -- predominantly junior or senior student volunteers -- from seven states (Arizona, Colorado, Kentucky, Nevada, North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia) have helped more than 14,000 high school students from 240 schools register to vote.
Across those states, 17 schools registered more than 85% of their eligible student body!
In three states that offered spring 2016 primary elections, Inspired Leaders called nearly 2,000 students to Get Out the Vote; of those who answered the call, 86% said they had voted or were planning to vote.
Working for You.
Regardless of political affiliation or points of view, our goal is encourage all eligible citizens to vote.
