About Us


Once you’re in the URGE family, you’re in the URGE family for life. URGE alums go on to make a big impact in the worlds of politics, media, advocacy, and more. URGE members learn and strengthen skills, run campaigns, meet new people, and use their experiences to impact the communities they are in now and the communities they will be a part of in the future. From Campus to Congress, School Boards to State Legislatures, local businesses to national media, URGE alum are an unstoppable force!

If you are an URGE (formerly Choice USA) alum, we would love to hear from you and know what all you are up to now. Join the URGE alumni social network, and you can connect with other former chapter members, training participants, and staff. Email us at azakariya@urge.org to learn about opportunities to serve as mentors, conference speakers, trainers, or guest bloggers.

And as always, our work is made possible by the generosity of our donors. You know best the real and potential power of young activists. Please help us continue to support the next generation of young leaders, and consider a financial contribution to URGE.
