Rhizome was co-founded in August 2021 by 90 young people across the U.S. We met through youth civics work and felt compelled to build a nonprofit that is student-led, community-driven, and committed to doing the work year-round. We know a better world is possible, and are willing to work for it.

We provide nonpartisan resources, training, and close-knit communities for youth leaders to engage in civic education through peer-mentorship.
