The mission of the New Hampshire Young Democrats is to recruit, train, and help elect the next generation of progressive leaders in New Hampshire.
The New Hampshire Young Democrats (NHYD) have a vast network of tools and skills to help guide young candidates running for elected office. NHYD's renowned elections program facilitates effective campaigns through support, training, and guidance to ensure candidates have the best chance at securing and effectively governing in local, statewide and national office.
Since hiring their first staff person in 2016, NHYD has grown from a few hundred to over 7,000 members statewide. They have held over 300 events to train and build capacity in young people and have helped over 100 young candidates run for office. With two paid staff and hundreds of statewide volunteers, NHYD is proud to have supported thousands of students and young workers in lifting up their voices and taking action on issues that matter.
The New Hampshire Young Democrats host a wide variety of events across the state. Annually, NHYD hosts the Granite Slate Award ceremony and annual summer BBQ honoring outstanding young Democrats across New Hampshire.
NHYD works closely with the New Hampshire College Democrats and New Hampshire High School Democrats to support, train and mentor young people of all ages to understand their rights and learn the skills to advocate on behalf of their shared futures.
The New Hampshire Young Democrats are imperative to the success of electoral and advocacy efforts throughout the Granite State. Your support is necessary to maintain this organization and ensure that young people have a seat at the table and a voice in the conversation. Please donate today!
