Our Mission

The Vigo County Young Democrats are Terre Haute and the Wabash Valley’s premiere Young Professionals organization. We’re open to any Democrat who lives or goes to school in Vigo County and has not yet reached the age of 36.

The Vigo County Young Democrats (VCYD) are made up of local young Democrats, as well as all of the local chapters of College Democrats and the High School Democrats, for which VCYD is the parent organization.

VCYD is the official youth arm of the Democratic Party within Vigo County.  We strive to:

  • Promote the philosophy, principles, and ideals of the Democratic Party within the State of Indiana, the Midwest, and across the United States of America.
  • Educate the citizens of the Wabash Valley about the issues and problems within the community, state, and nation and about what Democrats will do to solve those issues and problems.
  • Grow the Democratic Party by encouraging Democratic voter registration in the Wabash Valley, providing a forum for discussion of the Party, and by recruiting like-minded individuals to become politically active.
  • Help elect Democratic candidates by participating in the campaign process and guiding and training candidates with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed.
  • Foster the leadership abilities of our members, giving them the courage and expertise to make them better Democrats, and preparing them for future service to the Party and the United States of America.

Joining VCYD will present you with a unique opportunity to participate in the campaign and decision-making process. Young Democrats receive first-hand experience in campaigns and elections, grassroots organizing, fundraising and candidate elective office, just to name a few. Many of the Democratic Party’s leaders got their start in politics with the Young Democrats!
