San Francisco Young Democrats 2019 Appointed Board Application
San Francisco Young Democrats was founded in 1950 to be a political force for young Democrats that work or live in San Francisco. More than 60 years later, SFYD has grown to be one of the largest Young Dems chapter in the state and among the largest Democratic clubs in our city. Staying true to our founding principles, each year we organize hundreds of young people in the political process, endorse and actively support candidates who share our values, and train young leaders to make an impact.

In 2019 we're ready to hit the ground running for candidates at the local, state, and national levels. We're holding workshops and leadership trainings to build your organizing skills. We're hosting panels and events to create community and connect you with local elected officials. This year, for the first time in over a generation, we will also have the privilege of hosting the California Democratic Convention here in San Francisco as we begin our journey towards the primaries.

This will be a historic year. Are you ready to join?
