Evolvement is an award-winning youth movement empowering high school teens to work toward meaningful
change in their communities.
Once a school is accepted into the Evolvement Partner Program in a state or city with Evolvement,
students are trained on a specific Evolvement campaign. These campaigns are focused on causing tangible
change in their community, usually through legislative or voluntary policy change. After the training,
Evolvement members (Evolvers) work directly with staff to plan and lead their own campaign projects,
events, and more. Here’s how it works:
To become members, youth learn about Evolvement’s current campaigns, the issues they address, and how to
get active through an interactive training at their school.
As members, Evolvers get access to Rescue’s exclusive MyDot online system where they can connect with
fellow Evolvers, plan and track projects, volunteer at events, and redeem rewards.
Projects and Events
After completing their training, youth lead projects and events in their schools and communities to support Evolvement’s campaign efforts.
Conferences and Presentations
As Evolvers become leaders, they give educational presentations on campaign topics and present key
campaign findings at local, state, and national conferences.
Meetings with Key Decision Makers
As determined by the campaign strategy, top Evolvers meet with school boards, city councils, and other
local and state government officials.
PR and Earned Media
As the voices of their communities, Evolvers work with Rescue to garner earned media attention for their
Statewide Days of Actions
If the campaign strategy calls for it, Evolvers lead statewide days of action to help further the
campaign goals - organizing local events and speaking with the media.
Evolvement Leadership Teams
Each year, a group of dedicated youth is selected for their state or local Evolvement Leadership Team.
These youth are the leaders in their schools and communities, and help with extra Evolvement
