As a non-profit, raising the necessary funds to get our message out is critical to our efforts. Whatever you can do will help, including (but not limited to) hosting a large or small event in your town, making an individual tax-deductible contribution, or assisting with donation requests for our large-scale events.
The millennial generation views the world in graphics, pictures and images. Therefore, the way we educate our generation about the pressing news issues affecting our lives is via a daily “political translation,” and meme, which summarizes major media stories in a few quick bullet points, with a bold graphic and a punchy headline. Want to take a stab at writing a translation or creating a meme? Check out (and like) our Facebook page to see how we do it!
OP-EDS, BLOGS, AND ARTICLES

NATIONAL SERVICE JOBS
I care deeply about National Service jobs for young Americans and want to help get more millennials involved.
ELECTION REFORM AND VOTER REGISTRATION
Our Time’s largest advocacy initiative is modernizing our antiquated voting system nationwide, as well as continuing to register millions of young Americans to vote beginning at their 18th birthday. If you’ve had any problems registering or voting or just care deeply that we fix this critical problem immediately and you would like to join us in our advocacy on Capitol Hill or the Presidential Administration, we want to make sure your voice is heard alongside ours!
We work tirelessly to make sure everyone who wants to join OurTime’s efforts has a voice. We recognize so many of you have wonderfully creative ideas of what we can do. There are many ways you can help. Have other ideas for how you can get involved? Let us know!
