The High School Progressives of America is an organization unaffiliated with a party. It is for liberal thinkers who wish to explore progressive politics on local, state, and national levels.


Our Mission

Started as "High Schoolers for Bernie", the High School Progressives of America grew out of a campaign movement to support Bernie Sanders from the High School Community. We provided a national network of volunteers for the campaign, and even won the campaign's endorsement as a Bernie Sanders Campaign Organization. As the campaign drew to a close, we found that we still loved progressive politics and wished to continue electing liberal politicians. We have since formed a partnership with the Democratic-Socialists of America, and are continuing to grow and spread left wing politics. 

High Schoolers for Bernie was an essential campaign force for Bernie Sanders, and I look forward to seeing how they change the world in the future.
— Melanie McRae, Bernie Sanders campaign Regional Field Organizer
