The Republican National Committee makes significant investments in youth organizing. During the 2016 cycle, they provided more than $5 million in organizing resources for college and young Republicans. 

The DNC must: 

  1. Expand its support of the College Democrats and YDA, including direct financial assistance. 
  2. Hire a full-time Executive Director for the College Democrats and a youth-focused staffer to facilitate work with YDA and other young Democrats. 
  3. Provide frequent and accessible trainings on the state and local level to grow chapters and build up the next generation of leaders.
  4. Build a fundraising track that allows donors and young people to finance the programs they will implement.
