JOIN A CHAPTER

Get involved with your local Young Democrats.

YDNC has chapters across three regional jurisdictions in North Carolina. Our goal is to have all one hundred of North Carolina’s counties represented with a YDNC chapter.

Can’t find a local chapter?

Fill out our interest form and we will put you in contact with your region’s director or local chapter president. Also check our chapter directory.

START A CHAPTER

Your county not chartered?

If you want to get involved but your county isn’t chartered, we’ll help you start your own chapter!

To start a chapter, you’ll need five people who are registered Democrats and are at or between the ages of 16 and 35.

Don’t worry, we’ll help you every step of the way.

  • Fill out the interest form to get in contact with your region’s director.
  • Get five friends together!

Take the important first step in your community!

JOIN AT-LARGE

Make sure your county is represented statewide.

While we’re passionate about getting counties chartered, we know not everyone can meet the requirements to get their community organized.

You can still join at-large, meaning that you represent your county to YDNC.

Thinking of joining at-large?

To join, you need to be:

  • at or between 16 and 35
  • a registered Democrat
  • in a county where no chapter is currently chartered
  • in a county where there are less than five at-large members
