What is Know Your Vote?
At a point in time where corruption is rampant within our government, and the youth of India are becoming more apathetic towards voting, we understand the importance of educating the youth, our future leaders, to rise above and demand the accountability we deserve. In order to do this however, we must first stimulate the youth's political awareness. We want students to know that utilizing their right to vote can maximize the impact they make in their communities.
However, we believe that once these youth are aware of the worsening political scenario and socio-economic conditions present in India, we must empower them to bring about the necessary change. Thus, we focus on developing core leadership skills that will enable the youth to demand accountability and create change.
Know Your Vote seeks to utilize a chapter system to achieve its desired results. We believe that this enables grassroots reach while mobilizing the masses ensuring that we will enable the voice of the youth to be heard.
Furthermore, our unique approach to the situation of voter apathy, through constant exposure to political news combined with our unconventional negative information campaign and empowering young Indian citizens to demand accountability, sets us apart from other such campaigns.
Lastly, our leadership development curriculum and our mentorship program will provide our members with skill sets that will help them in all future endeavors.
To create long term and sustainable change in the mindset of India’s youth by increasing political awareness and stimulating those individuals to make educated voting decisions while simultaneously equipping the youth with leadership and professional skills.
