Common Power Future Summer Action Academy

Website: Common Power Future


Common Power Future, a Seattle-based pro-democracy civic organization, offers a summer Action Academy program.  Action Academy engages college-aged students in learning about voting rights and voting history in America and leads to concrete participation in national civic fieldwork. In addition, we provide a stipend to support participants devoting their time to this work.

Common Power Future

Common Power Future engages young people in the democratic process, with the goal of building next-generation leaders who can make a difference in our world. We are the college-aged part of the larger family of organizations, Common Power, which is a civic action organization committed to fighting for a just and inclusive democracy.  You can find out more at Common Power Future here.

Summer Action Academy will include:

  • focus on hands-on community + local organizing
  • spend time with mis/disinformation experts to learn how to combat it online and at home
  • action hour opportunities including special sessions with professional athletes, up and coming journalists and even elected officials


Participants will receive a $1,000 stipend upon completion of the program. 


We are committed to uplifting and building young diverse leaders including groups historically underrepresented due to race/ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, and/or ability. We strongly encourage members of underrepresented and marginalized communities to apply to the program.
