The Students Learn Students Vote (SLSV) Coalition is the national hub & largest nonpartisan network in the country dedicated to increasing student voter participation.

We're helping college students across the country partcipate in our democracy!

The SLSV Coalition is made up of campus, nonprofit, community, student, and philanthropic leaders, all working together to grow the student vote. We lead collaborations between these organizations, coordinate national programs and campaigns, and distribute resources to organizers on the ground, all to advance our shared goal of helping students take part in our democracy.

Why the #StudentVote?

New voters can be hesitant to cast a ballot because the process feels complicated to them. There are real psychological and knowledge barriers around voting, and students often cite “not knowing enough” about candidates or issues, as reasons for shying away from voting. Students need accessible, accurate information from trusted sources in their own communities. Together we help student voters navigate their uncertainty about the electoral process.

About the SLSV Coalition

our approach

By providing funding, resources, connections, and strategic direction, like the planning structure set up by the SLSV Checklist, we help campus and local leaders plan and deploy best practices to serve their students' needs.
