Inspire Arizona’s mission is to transform young leaders’ inspiration into action that improves communities and strengthens our democracy. Inspire Arizona is a program of Project High Hopes, a 501(c)3 operating foundation. In addition to Arizona, Inspire US currently operates in Colorado, Kentucky, Nevada, Virginia, and West Virginia. By 2018, we will see amplified representation of young voices who are informed, confident, and empowered participating in elections.
After graduating from the Leadership Academy, students begin a year of activities designed to improve their communities and strengthen our democracy. We call this “The Inspired Year.” Students will collaborate with fellow Leadership Academy graduates, community mentors, and the Inspire Arizona staff at a series of trainings and events. The students will engage their peers and communities while challenging themselves to be stronger leaders and more informed citizens.
