Mission Statement

The Millennial Institute is an unincorporated, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing political apathy and increasing voter turnout among young Americans.
Hazen S. Pingree, the 24th Governor of Michigan, once argued that "voter apathy is the greatest threat to democracy". And in the spirit of preserving our democracy, our number one goal is to transform the most politically apathetic generation of Americans into informed, engaged, and impassioned citizens that care about what is happening in the world, acknowledge how it affects them, and have a genuine desire to change it for the better. Here at the Millennial Institute, it is our hope that with our dedicated staff spanning 7 states and Washington DC, we can spread all facets of political awareness throughout the nation and get young people to think, argue, and vote about the issues.
