Texas Youth Power Alliance is building the power of young people in Texas to win on the issues that matter to them

Who We Are

Created in the spirit of collaboration, the Texas Youth Power Alliance (TYPA) was founded in 2018 by the largest youth civic engagement organizations in Texas - Jolt Initiative, MOVE Texas, Texas Rising and Youth Rise Texas. With a shared purpose of harnessing the full power of young people in Texas - especially young people of color – TYPA is a collective of state-based, homegrown groups that is committed to engaging and empowering young people to become bold, progressive and transformative leaders.

Our Goals

TYPA is investing long-term in young leaders across Texas. Utilizing an Integrative voter engagement model, our priority is to develop strategies for generational change.

Leadership Development

With an emphasis on year-round leadership development, TYPA recruits, mentors and trains young leaders on issue advocacy, electoral politics and communications strategies. Our Integrated Voter Engagement model is successful because of the long-term investment in young people.

Civic Engagement

TYPA partners are committed to expanding the electorate by engaging, registering and turning out out hundreds of thousands of new, young voters every election cycle. The impact of our work was evident in the 2020 election, when youth voter turnout jumped from 28% to 41% statewide!

Issue Organizing

Through our collaborative Youth Justice Agenda, TYPA is dedicated to winning on issues of importance to young people - voting rights, climate justice, LGBTQ+ equality, immigration reform, policing in our communities – to ensure and to benefit the long-term success of our state’s young people.

Why Now?

In Texas, young people under age 35 make up 50% of the population and 66% of them are people of color. Voters under the age of 30 make up almost one third of the electorate indicating that the under 30 demographic TYPA focuses on is key to building long-term change in Texas.
