"We believe that the single most powerful act we can do is prepare young people with the skills and commitments to take actions around causes that matter to them with courage, compassion and collaboration," says the kit's website.
The package focuses on voting, organizing, and running for office yourself.
"Particularly for young women, running for office is an act of resistance, and a direct action to fight against injustice in your community," the introduction reads.
The project will also set girls up with Rise to Run to mentor them as they prepare to run for office. The other organizations behind the initiative are Teen Vogue, Peace First, Rise To Run, The Justice League NYC, The Gathering For Justice, and Rock The Vote.
