A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Kids can learn how to make their voices heard and affect change in their communities or on a national level. Videos and a news blog showcase Mobilize.org's successes, and the "opportunities" blog posts about topics like fundraising, building coalitions, and working with the media provide smart, practical advice for teens involved in causes. Additional resources could make this Millennial-focused site even more engaging and educational.
Mobilize.org encourages Millennials to get involved in causes they care about and provides examples of young people who've made important contributions to society.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this nonpartisan, nonprofit organization empowers young adults to get involved in issues that are important to them. There's a blog that allows comments, and visitors can also sign up for a newsletter.
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.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
