6 months ago I started a project to engage people my age in politics and social issues using an impartial platform. Half a year on, and there are now 3 of us managing this great venture - but there's only me that can afford to put money in, and I'm struggling. Help our mission grow!

YouthDebates.org is an impartial discussion board made for young people around the world, managed by young people all around the world. 

Our core goal is to encourage young people who would otherwise be without a voice to get involved in the decision making processes around them. We do this by diversifying our staff team, who are all volunteers, across the political spectrum; remaining free from government or party connections and, importantly, refusing to run adverts. 

This leaves us with no income aside from donations, but we'd really like to keep doing what we're doing! In just 6 months we've amassed over 140,000 posts on almost 7,000 different topics, and we have big aims for the future. 

Due to budget restrictions we are currently restricted to 8 countries: the UK, USA, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and India. If we can source some fresh income we'd love to branch out into other countries, and even other languages. We think the number of posts we've managed in just 6 months on a shoestring budget is proof enough of our potential appeal!
