Since 2004 we’ve been hitting the streets, organizing fun events, and using cutting edge media tools to connect to youth, facilitate their voices being heard during elections, and providing the information they need to get out to the polls.
In the 2005 British Columbia Provincial Election GYVO registered over 20,000 first time voters through a combination of street outreach, voter ‘hubs’, and concerts and events across the province; the result was the first increase in youth voter turn out since the 1970’s.
GYVO continues to engage youth during elections around the province in a variety of non-traditional ways. Most of our activities happen around election time. If you’d like to rock out with us, drop a line!
