Mission & Vision
Mikva Challenge is a non-partisan, not for profit founded on the premise that youth voice and participation matter, and that our civic and political life will be stronger when youth participate and help shape their own destinies.
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.
