What's it about?

Founded in 2002, MOBILIZE.ORG focuses on organizing and empowering Millennials -- young adults born between 1976 and 1996. The nonprofit organization refers to itself as \"all-partisan,\" meaning young people of all political persuasions are welcome. Mobilize.org gathers groups of Millennials to discuss important issues and work together toward solutions, and then funds the resulting projects. Its website reports on the results of the summits and features a blog that reflects on news from a Millennial point of view.

Is it any good?

Mobilize.org presents a creative, inspiring platform for an oft-maligned generation to make their voices heard and make a positive impact on the world. The website provides plenty of information about the organization's mission and history, but it's hard to find out how to get involved; visitors might get fired up about the great things Mobilize has accomplished and then fizzle out while trying to figure out how they fit in. Tip: Check out the "opportunities" section in Resources for practical advice on topics like fundraising, planning events, and building coalitions.
